View Full Version : [ubuntu] trying to install a new font

December 21st, 2009, 09:21 PM
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit.

I'm trying to install the Artwiz Snap font to use with my desktop theme (Mira2). So far I'm having trouble. I went here: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Artwiz+Snap+font+with+iso8859-2+chars?content=91519
and started by downloading the PCF font. When I clicked install, the button changed to say "installed," but the font isn't available in Open Office, nor is it available in the Fonts tab of the Appearance Preferences control panel.
There's also an option to download the BDF source code, but I don't know what to do with that.

I want to give credit but can't remember where I got this script from.

Place it in your home directory and make it executable.

Click on it and you have an easy way to install any script.
