Put the Truetype font TTF files in ~/.local/share/fonts and run "fc-cache -f -v".

I copied the fonts to the invisible font folder and ran the command. The response came back with recognizing the 438 fonts and notification that the cache succeeded. I opened Libre Office Writer with anticipation of my new font options and only saw the original five that came with my distro. It's progress, what next?

Please start another thread to continue this, instead of further derailing this one.
