1.Go to


2.RTFM Smile and Download/install mkfontdir.pup

3. Make this script.
WARNNG! i'm a newbie in this but the script seems to work.

cp /root/.fonts/fonts.dir /root/.fonts/fonts.dir.bak
cp /root/.fonts/fonts.scale /root/.fonts/fonts.scale.bak
mkfontscale /root/.fonts
mkfontdir /root/.fonts

4. copy your .ttf font files to /root/.fonts {you can maybe find some in c:\windows\fonts or elswhere}

run the script and the fonts will work in your applications.
