Hey this may seem like a stupid question, but can't figure it out, but can anyone tell me how I can add new fonts to gimp?
Matlab, Ubuntu and Fonts
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2009
I'm using Jaunty and have just installed Matlab. Unfortunately, Matlab's default font is rubbish and I want to use profont instead (the 1's and l's look different, and the font is perfectly readable at 6.5 or 7 point!).
I have copied profont's pcf files into ~/.fonts and run fc-cache -f -v, and I can access profont in most applications. For example, my terminal, emacs and gedit are all set to use it by default.
Unfortunately it doesn't show up in the list of fonts I can select from in Matlab, and it also doesn't show up in the list of fonts I can select from in Open Office (less critical, but still annoying).
If anyone can help I'd much appreciate it! It seems to me that maybe either:
* I haven't installed the font correctly (although it works perfectly in lots of other apps?)
* PCF denotes some type of font, and one which neither matlab or open office can use. That would be annoying :/
Missing fonts when using NoMachine NX
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 11, 2012
I've recently moved from Ubuntu 10.10 to Ubuntu 11.10. (doing fresh install).
Everything seems to work OK.
I'm using the NoMachine's NX client to access a remote RHEL5 server. With Ubuntu 11.10, some remote applications looks awful, with strange fonts... (while with Ubuntu 10.10 they looked fine)
I've installed the ttf-mscorefonts-installer, but it didn't help.
It seems as if some defaults fonts the existed in Ubuntu 10.10 have been removed in Ubuntu 11.10, or maybe something else has been changed.
Thanks for the help!

Resetting Ubuntu system fonts
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 14, 2008
When i installed Ubuntu 7.10 I kinda played around with the default settings for font type and sizes... I think that was a mistake since I now have to resize everything all the time because its just way too small.. esp in firefox
Is there a way in which I can reset the settings?
Change fonts in NAUTILUS without affecting other apps/desktop....?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2010
Hi all, again.
I have been doing some customisations, and so far, I have my desktop looking pretty sweet.
I am having one problem though; In changing the Applications font in Appearance preferences, it changes the font used in Nautilus, which i do not want, as the font I am using does not have capitals. I only want the font on my panel Menus and/or Desktop, but not in Nautilus.
So what I want to know is this: can I set the font individually for Nautilus (or any app, for that matter)? If not, can I set the Applications font to the one I want for Nautilus, and then set an individual font for my panel Menu headings/Menus?
As usual, any assistance and input would be gratefully appreciated!!!
Installing .ttf fonts in ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 30, 2007
I am new on this forum and in Linux also.
Before I will start to ask stupid thing, I would like to apologize myself for any stupidity I can ask in the future. Please, be patient with me.
So here it is the first question:
In the list of fonts of the OpenOffice.org Writer I see the Georgian fonts like BPG_Chveulebrivi.ttf, but I can't activate them. Even when I choose them still the Latin letters appear on the screen.
Is there anybody who can explain me why I can't print those characters?
What should I do to solve this?
Thank you in advance
With best regards

Installing new fonts in 11.10

In previous versions of Ubuntu installing fonts was as easy as opening the file and clicking install. What is the procedure in 11.10? As opening the file doesn't seem to do anything.
Can't install fonts on Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 29, 2013
I'm dualbooting Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a Windows-based laptop, and I can't seem to install fonts.
Every time I attempt to install a font, it comes up with "Install Failed", and I can't manually place them in the file system because the administrator account doesn't have root permissions.
