Question Font problems...


I am having some issues installing my windoz fonts in Mandrake 9.1. I have gone through the whole Mandrake Controll Center -> System -> DrakFont -> Get Windows Fonts thing and when that is done... the wondows fonts are nowhere to be found.

Do I need to add a path or something to a file somewhere?

Does anyone have an idea of what I could do?

Thanks for any help.

Geoff

hmm...well you could update your locate database(updatedb) and then try to locate one of the font files. Say the font file is called windowsfont.ttf then you could do:

locate windowsfont.ttf

to find the location of it.

Thank-you I will try that...

Also what if I find thees fonts in my Linux partition(s) but they are still not accessable in any of my file editors... how can I add them to that list?

Thanks
Geoff
