Open up Nautilus and in the location space put: fonts:///

And then just copy over your .PFB files.
That will add the fonts for you =)

(if this isn't your problem, sorry :P)

Anytime Ive added a font, I just copied it to the ~/.fonts/ dir and it worked immediately. I think it may be because it needs to be plural.

PS tried both

You are just copying the .PFB file over right? Nothing else, right?

Yes I am only using the .pfb files
