Install True Type Fonts: Using a Font Server

You can add your own fonts and sharing them by putting them into /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype. You need to run a couple of commands to make them available to X (thanks to Adam Trickett 080302):

# aptitude install ttmkfdir
# cd /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype
# mkdir ttf-foo
(then put your foo fonts in here)
# cd foo
# ttmkfdir
# head -1 fonts.scale > fonts.dir
# tail -n +2 fonts.scale | tac >> fonts.dir
# cp fonts.dir fonts.scale
