Add some fonts.


I would like to know what we have to do to add some ttf fonts and use it with xfce and X. I've searched on google and i've found few things ...
A person says we have to put *.tff into /usr/X11R6/.../fonts/truetype and run mkfontdir but ... it doesn't work. I do not get these fonts on my xfce panel ...

Do i have to compile xfce with ttf option or something like ? Maybe you know a great documentation to help me ?
