Try
http://www.1001fonts.com/payfonts/794/L ... talic.html
www.dafont.com

I think that to install fonts, you copy them into the /usr/share/fonts, then depending what type of font it is you put it in the correct directory, for example True type fonts go into the truetype folder. Hope this helps

Hi Rokurosv - it's me again!
Great, I have purchased the Lucida Handwriting fonts,(£19.98, ouch!) and have got the file in the Home Folder. Can you or any other kind soul tell me where the TrueType folder is located (I have got mstt fonts installed) and how I install the font file into it.
Thanks.
Peter4933.

http://vitalbodies.wordpress.com/2008/07/01/installing-fonts-in-ubuntu/ ... should be the same in mint.

You used to be able to just put fonts:// in the nautilus address bar to get to it.. dunno why they got rid of such a nice feature.

Hi sputty01. Thanks so much. I went to the Vitalbodies site and printed out the instructions. Found the True Type folder via the terminal and I now have Lucida Handwriting installed.
Thanks also to Rokurosv for initially pointing me in the right direction.
Regards to you both,
Peter4933.
