Installing Fonts in Gnome..
1)Open a Nautilus window -->type "fonts:///" [that should open your fonts folder]
2)Download TTF fonts from the internet.. and by the way fonts you are going to install need not be in rpm files alone, download any file which has a .ttf extension, if its in a zip file unzip it.
3)Open another Nautilus window -->browse to the directory where you have unzipped the .ttf files.
4)Drag and drop them into the other Nautilus window [fonts:///] you have opened earlier (Step 1).
**You wont see the dropped files immediately in nautilus****
5)After you have finished pasting the .ttf files , open your home directory to see all the files are there in .fonts directory in home folder [ie. /root/.fonts or. /home/ur_name/.fonts].
6)Log-out and log back in.
7)Check the Menu -->Preferences -->font [You should see all the newly installed fonts].
If you find and mistakes or inconsistencies in the above guide, please feel free to post them.
