I want to remove excess fonts please point me in the direction

I'm using Suse latest version however I suspect this is a general question that I've not been able to decifer.
There are a whole bunch of useless to me fonts on the system but I can't find the file/directory or whatever to be able to edit/delete those fonts and keep the ones I use/that the system uses.

Please point me or give me some commands to the proper way to do this.

if you're a KDE user, there is an easy tool for managing fonts in KDE Configuration/system/fonts.

Thanks for the info.
Here's what I found/did
From Root I did find a font installer which when I started it turned out to be KDE's
So I went through and disabled then trashed a bunch of these unwanted fonts.
hit enter. The window closed.
I then relogged as myself- but all the fonts are still there.
I tried this two or three times more, instead of just hitting enter I alt+O for Ok
but none of these actions seemed to work.
I even did the windows thing of restarting the computer, that didn't do the trick either.

So what else/next could I try.

Thanks again for the try.
