    True Type Fonts

    Could someone point me to a good tutorial on setting up true type fonts in Mandrake and RedHat? Thankyou much.

    This is what I use and it always works fine for me.

    cd /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts
    mkdir TrueType
    Copy your Windows TT Fonts to newly created directory
    cd TrueType
    /usr/sbin/ttmkfdir >fonts.scale
    Next add the TrueType font path to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

    For Mandrake, it's very easy. Mandrake included a tool called drakfont. With this tool you can install TrueType fonts from a Windows partition, CD, ZIP disk, floppy, etc. Just direct drakfont to wherever the fonts are.

    What version of Red Hat are you running? With 7.2, it's also very easy.
