Installing TTF Fonts
« on: April 04, 2020, 07:35:29 pm »
Dear Friends:

On Linux Mint and several other OS installs, in order to install a TTF font on my machine, all I had to do was click on the font to add it. In Peppermint, this does not work. I have a number of fonts I need for my documents, plus Greek and Hebrew fonts. Can somebody show me how to install them please?

Thanks in advance!

Hi XE1UFO,

At the moment I do not time to check this out for you, but I know that this has been solved on the forum already. You should start by using the forum's Search: function. I'm sure that you will quickly find the answer.  ;)

in your home directory press CTRL+H to show hidden files, then look for the .fonts folder (create one if needed). drop them in there and see do they work then. press CTRL+H again to rehide the hidden folders

I save mine in /usr/share/fonts

edit; sorry about that, I missed a folder, should be /usr/local/share/fonts

I put mine in
Code: [Select]
/user/home(hidden files)/.local/share
Name the file fonts instead of .fonts that goes in Hidden files in home folder. You can do the same with any Linux.  ;D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)
