Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After installing a 6000+ font collection from KDE-Look.org, my computer had assumed a new font, though I restarted and it is now fine, generally speaking. My Firefox still has this crazy font, and it is so weird that it is almost unreadable.
I have investigated the FF preferences, but that shows the default font of Serif. What to do?
I don't have KDE running at the moment so this is from memory.
Start the KDE control panel. Find the Appearance section, then Fonts. You will see a setting for GTK application fonts. It is probably set to use KDE fonts for GTK applications. Change it to something else.
Firefox uses GTK settings.

Simpler solution? Besides deleting 6000 font files (possibly 1-by-1?
What if I were to delete the proper TFF, then what? Would FF revert back to a default font, or would it cause some error without the assigned font present. I don't even know what Im talking about.
I have re-installed so many times that my computer just automatically does it by heart when I tell it to. In 14 months of Linux computing, I still have not "settled in" to my machine yet, and I NEED TO. Fixing my OS is taking WAYYY too much of my study time away.
