Posted by Divago on April 08 2008,10:29Hi all
i already posted a similar question BUT i posted it in completely wrong section >_<
i'm using a dsl with some tweaking added to make a kiosk system, and i need to run a gtk(2? not a big expert) app a mate did
now, i need monospaced fonts for this app; dsl come with just few fonts, and only one monospaced (named "monospace" afaik )
and i need to install other fonts
i downloaded and installed some font package i found on mydsl repositories, but gtk app just does'nt use it (abiword neither so i suppose they are not correctly installed?)
i tried to follow this link < http://damnsmalllinux.org/f/topic-3-26-18569-0.html > and install ttf BUT does'nt work (xsftt does'nt install for some strange reason i really don't know... a dpkg recurring problem)
so, there is another way to install fonts? i don't need complex or difficult-to-install font; i saw "monospace" font on Fedora and it's cool enough (while monospace in dsl is pretty ugly... second only to courier >_> ). There is a way to "export" monospace font from FC and "import" on dsl?
ty for helping

So first find out which one it is, then copy to DSL.

and where is located fonts for dsl? /opt/fonts?
