    How to install TTF fonts?

    I checked about 7 pages of this forum and PET area but found nothing so here goes.

    I'm using RH 7.2 and would like to install some TTF fonts that I have. Some from Winders and some Asian language fonts so that I can read it and my browser ( Mozilla ) can display the text. How do I go about it?

    TIA

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

    Where does one get the ttmkfdir app?

    i searched for it on freshmeat but it wouldnt compile for me ... then i just did it with mkfontdir , it works without problems so dont know why you need the ttmkfdir thing ..

    what would the difference between the windows truetype fonts and the fonts already on my system? Is it just so things made with windows fonts like a website or something are displayed the way they are ment too?
