How do I add new fonts that will be accessible to all users on my machine?
I'm running CentOS 6.4.
I know there is the user's ~/.fonts directory, but I want ALL users to have access to fonts I load.
I just installed my Windows fonts like I normally do(/usr/share/fonts/truetype/fonts). I did sudo fc-cache -f -v and restarted. When I logged on and went too Google there were no fonts on the page. I tried other websites such as this forum, Neowin and Bing. All didn't have fonts. FontyPython said "Font may be bad and cannot be drawn."
I've run into this huge issue with a graphic designer. They want to be able to install fonts they have downloaded. This user is a non-admin user on the local machine and a non-admin user on our network.
I have spent many hours without success trying to find an example/printout of the fonts installed in linux. I have found new fonts, how to install fonts, how to build fonts,etc. What I am seeking is an example showing what each font looks like: This is Arial, This is impact. Is there such a thing or am I going to have to spend all day typing one out?
