Whoops!

22 Aug

G’day,

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

Cheers

Martin

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.
