bit of a numptie!  Remember Maxwell Smart’s “missed it by that much” – well the font installer does just that.  Oo finds the fonts fine cos it has a bit of a rummage around but other apps such as NVU and Abiword ain’t so smart and only looks for fonts in a couple of folders.  As you can guess, the installer puts them into the not quite there folder.  This will be fixed in a jiffy – sorry for inconvenience….

If you would like to do it manually then:

  1. Go to /usr/share/fonts/default and you should see the folders truetype and msttcorefonts
  2. Move the contents of those folders into /usr/share/fonts/truetype

If your clever then there’s the mv command in the Terminal – but for this it’s just as easy to open two ROX filer windows



PS. Cleaning up the Help guide as it seems to be all over the place.  Names of a couple of earlier versions crop up such as SimplePup and PuppyTLC…  still like the name PuppyTLC as TLC stands for Toowoomba Linux Community.
