iSin - welcome to the forums ...

Installed fonts should be located in filesystem at /usr/share/fonts ....
Look through these folders ... or use Search facility.

Install a font viewer/manager, it'll help you in your search :)

font-manager - this one uses GTK+2
fontmatrix - this one uses Qt4 (handy for KDE users)

Hi!

I think Sylfaen is a Microsoft thing so I don't know where it is...
Look under:
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/

What happens if you search the system for the file 'sylfaen'?

Also check the hidden folder. This folder is not installed by default, but it might have been created by a font installer.

~/.fonts/

If you just need a copy of this font, then you can download it from the internet, it is free.

I found it here:
