Re: Help installing true type fonts in LM18 (Solved, sort of)

...."Just right-clicking" the zip file extracted the contents and installed the font? I doubt that was the process for several reasons, one of which is: what is "the debian"?.... Why do you doubt this statement? My first attached pic above shows exactly what I am referring to. I...

Re: Help installing true type fonts in LM18 (Solved, sort of)

magicchance, You can create the folder ~/.fonts and move the .ttf files there. Then log off and back in again at which time they will be available. Thanks, but what exactly is this process? Right now all the files are still zipped up. Normally, with LM17, the unzipping step also sent the files to t...

Re: Help installing true type fonts in LM18 (Solved, sort of)

magicchance Any news on when this bug will be fixed? LM17 worked great with .ttf files. That's a strange error (picture) - are you opening the zip file with gdebi or dpkg-whatever? It's real easy to install .ttf files: basically copy the files to /usr/share/fonts/truetype/optional-directory, then r...

Help installing true type fonts in LM18 (SOLVED)

I'm having difficulty installing custom .ttf fonts from the web into LM18. What am I missing with the LM18 please? SOLVED: The answer is to use the 'font-manager' found in the Software Manager. 'Font viewer' does not work with LM18, and the auto-install feature from LM17 has not been incorporated in...
