KDE fonts


Hello,
Where can I get new fonts for KDE? Also where do I put/install them?
Does anyone know of a *BASIC* (read newbie-level) tutorial for using MS truetype fonts.

TIA,
Andy

see http://www.bogomips.de/linux/fonts.php

google for fontconfig and/or xft


This works with SuSE9.0 and X4.3.0 :

look in /etc/fons/fonts.conf for the path (e.g. /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts)

copy MS ttf fonts to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ttf

call fc-cache -f -v

add to font path in XF86Config the line
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ttf"

restart X

This one is very clear:

This one complicates a bit more (all the .rpm stuff), but it's worth a look:
