to add the microsoft TTF fonts to fedora core release 3 do as follows

 

STEP one:

 

get the fonts from your windows box, typically located in c:\Windows\Fonts and copy them to your linux machine.

 

STEP two:

 

login as root and do as follows

 

 

 

[root@localhost wine]# mkdir /usr/share/fonts/TTF 
cp /home/anyweb/ttf_fonts/*.ttf /usr/share/fonts/TTF/ 
/sbin/service xfs reload

 

STEP three:

 

that's it, all done,. restart a few applications like FireFox to notice the difference !

 

easy or WHAT :)

 

cheers
