Question Importing Windows Fonts


Hey,
I'm new to Linux, so this is probably a stupid question. I'm running Mandrake Linux 10.0 and I have read you can import your Windows fonts with the tool called DrakFont. I have found DrakFont but I haven't seen anything on it concerning importing your fonts. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Open the Control Center and select System. Then Fonts ----- there is an option to import fonts here.
Good luck.

you'll have to navigate to your windows partition and go to the fonts folder and add each desired font to the list. Its the only way I can think of right off. Of course, if you want the common web/screen fonts, you can download them. Just urpmi for corefonts (if it doesn't know what you want, go to easyurpmi and create a sources list with plf and contrib as sources - German and French mirrors seem fastest - and try agagin). You should end up with tahokma, times new roman, veranda, fixed, arial, arial black, and comic sans ms, at least.
