    Talking How/where can I load/put more fonts into the Knoppix 6.2?

    I wonder how to and off course where to put some additional fonts and where to get them and if programs would see new fonts lightly?

    Is it easy?

    you cna put them in /usr/share/fonts/X11 and then do
    sudo fc-cache -f
    in terminal to refresh the fonts

    Take a look here for some pretty good clues on the topic of fonts, etc.

    He is most probably asking about fonts for use with X - true type fonts only need to be copied in /usr/share/fonts/X11 and the cache has to be refreshed to take effect

    I'm asking without knowing anything. I'm a newbie, sometimes LOST in the bush of Knoppie .')

    How can I refresh the cache? Manually in some way?

    Check my previous message. First you put your TTF fonts in /usr/share/fonts/
    You can make one folder called truetype and place your fonts in there. Then you open lxterminal and type sudo fc-cache -f
    hit enter and you are done. Your fonts will appear in any application using truetype fonts

    I've downloaded "Stargate Atlantis True Type Font" and many polish TTF fonts I've found freely. In the evening I'll give it a go and report back, Sir!

    If you are planning to use many fonts I'd suggest you to use some application as fontypython or fontmatrix to quickly load and unload groups of fonts. Many fonts can burden your system if installed permanently and will confuse you when you have to choose a font to use. fontmatrix is very powerful, but I use fontypython because it's a bit lighter

    Here is one more tip from me regarding fonts. Open /etc/fonts/fonts.conf and add the following lines just before <!-- Font directory list -->

    <match target="font">
    <edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
    <bool>true</bool>
    </edit>
    </match>

    <match target="font">
    <edit name="autohint" mode="assign">
    <bool>true</bool>
    </edit>
    </match>

    <match target="font">
    <edit name="hintstyle" mode="assign">
    <const>hintslight</const>
    </edit>
    </match>

    This makes sure that antialiasing is turned on and turns on autohinting. You may notice a pretty good change in how your fonts look on screen
