I found the following location for fiddling with fonts with the XFCE window manager:
Menu>Settings>"System Settings">"System Administration">"Font Installer"
What I want to know:
1) how do I assign a font to Personal group when none exists in that category?
I don't fully get what is meant with "Personal group" but you can always create
a fonts directory of your own at /home/you/.fonts. Go to that directory and
create a scale and dir record:
If you want X system to use certain font just place it in a
directory, use xorg.conf to define the path of that font:
Then cache it in:
At next load of X and login you should be able to have the fonts
available; or you may force reload X :
if your xorg setting allows that then the X is zapped to reload.
You can login.
2) as a user if I use Group Personal will the font selected apply to my "System Terminal", System, Terminal, Konsole, or Xwindowj or all of these?
Where else, if at any, will the selected font be used?
Most terminal can change fonts in use. But if you are using xterm you have two ways
to control the font.
Use the /home/you/.Xresources file. If you have not you can
create your own and fix font by:
xterm*font: Font\ 10 (size of font)
Hope that helps.
