I've been trying to get a ttf font added to gimp with no success, I followed rodrin's instructions in thread 77536 but gimp still doesn't see the fonts, all my other programs do! what am I doing wrong?
if it helps I installed the font (CaptainPodd.ttf) in /usr/share/fonts/TTF/ doing the following steps
cp CaptainPodd.ttf /usr/share/fonts/TTF/
chmod 644 /usr/share/fonts/TTF/CaptainPodd.ttf
vi /etc/XF86Config and uncommented out Load "freetype", in Section "Files"
all my other programs now have the new ttf font available except gimp! What do I need to do to get gimp to play ball?
