Right ... just wanted to verify.
For a per user basis, here is what I do at my school where I have
installed fonts in my ~/.fonts directory:
1. Copy the ttf fonts in ~/.fonts
2. run fc-cache -fv ~/.fonts
and I can then see the fonts.
For system wide fonts, I guess you put all the fonts in
/usr/local/share/fonts/ and tell the X system that this directory
contains the fonts and then run fc-cache -fv. How to tell the system
where to look for fonts? I suggest one should search google (I am not
sure, and don't want to guess).
