What language is that? You can edit your localization by opening Mint Menu - Administration - Language Support

Open nautilus, find the font file, copy it (Ctrl + c)
Open a terminal and type:

Code: Select all

sudo nautilus
(Or right click and select "root-nautilus-here")
Make sure you have the "text field" and not the icon view in nautilus ie. click the "notepad icon".
Type:

Code: Select all

fonts:///
- Hit enter!
Paste the fontfile (Ctrl + v).

...or...

Code: Select all

sudo cp /PATH_TO_FONT_ FILE/FILENAME /usr/share/fonts/truetype/

- Hit enter!
Replace "PATH_TO_FONT_ FILE" with the correct path, and "FILENAME" with the name of your font file.
Good luck!
