Installing fonts in Gnome


Hi all.

Having some issues trying to install new TrueType and OpenType fonts in Gnome (running Fedora 10 on an IBM T41). I've gone through this but Nautilus chokes when I enter "fonts:///" in the location field. I navigated to the usr/share/fonts folder but permission is denied when I try to copy the fonts in and I don't know how to get around that in the GUI.

My command line skills are weak when it comes to copying files. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

( warnning mjm assumes you have set up "sudo" )
just replace " sudo" with "su -" then your root password when asked
