How To: Install Truetype Fonts on your Linux system

Install Truetype Fonts on your Linux system

Shawn Powers teaches us how to install Truetype fonts on your Linux systems. First, log onto your web browser and go to Halloween Fonts. Once on this site, browse through the different types of fonts until you find one that you like. After this, save the file for the font onto your desktop. Now, install this font on your command line by first unzipping it. Go to the user share Truetype folder, then make a new custom folder. Move the file into the folder, then make sure the font and the folder are both owned by "root". Once you've done this, you will run the command "sudo fc-cache", then it will update the font cache for your system and you can change it to what font you downloaded.
