    TTF Fonts from WinXP in Slackware current (pre-9.1)

    You should no longer need to manually install ttmkfdir or XFSTT to use TTF fonts in Slackware current (pre-9.1). Do the following as root...

    1) Copy your fonts from your Windows/Fonts directory to /usr/X11/lib/fonts/TTF
    2a)
    Code:
    cd /usr/X11/lib/fonts/TTF
    2b)
    Code:
    /usr/X11/bin/mkfontscale
    (you may need to remove marlett.ttf or some such font, mkfontscale gives an error on it)
    2c)
    Code:
    /usr/X11/bin/mkfontdir
    3) Make sure that everyone can *read* the fonts you just copied:
    Code:
    chmod a+r /usr/X11/lib/fonts/TTF/*
    (This was the step I forgot, OpenOffice won't pick up that the fonts are there unless they can be read...)
    4) Make sure your /etc/X11/XF86Config has a line like
    Code:
    FontPath         "/usr/X11/lib/fonts/TTF"
    5) Restart X, and you should be ready to go! (Note: This does not yet get the fonts to show up in Mozilla Firebird-GTK2-XFT2)
