Can't see fonts...

GIMP (1.2.3) can't see my new True Type fonts in RH8.0 that I added*. I've got them up for all other apps (Mozilla, etc.), but GIMP only sees the original fonts.

*here's how I added new fonts: -create /usr/share/fonts/"true-type font dir" as root -move ttf's there
-go to the new directory and run mkfontdir -run ttmkfdir -o fonts.dir
-run /usr/sbin/chkfontpath -add /usr/share/fonts/"true-type font dir" -run /etc/init.d/xfs restart

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

hi,

i have had a heck of a time with fonts.

for gimp-1.2 i suggest getting the gimp-freetype plug-in from http://freetype.gimp.org get 0.2. there is a configure button there that will find the fonts for you (i bet).

i have yet to find ttf with the other text tools in gimp-1.2.

good luck carol

The "Dynamic Text" tool also works well with Windows fonts on Linux.

Peace....

Know wether or not this will also work from the PerlServer?

Thanks,
