can't install new fonts (no font folder)

Bug #215995 reported by Benjamin on 2008-04-11
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

When I go under System > Preferences > Appearance [Fonts]. It doesn't allow me to "Go to the Fonts folder". Also the Help file doesn't reflect the change that the location is System > Preferences > Appearance [Fonts] rather than System > Preferences > Fonts.

The way the help folder suggests still is incorrect. However this is a way to make it work:

       Copy all your ttf files into a folder (ex: ~/.fonts)
       Then run this command
        fc-cache -fv [file ttfs are in] (ex: fc-cache -fv ~/.fonts)

Now you have new fonts for all programs to use.
