Hi,

Firstly I tried the livecd last night and am pleased to say font rendering was 100% better in FF than it is on openSuse 11.2 KDE. I found a link on these forums yesterday about how to copy my win7 fonts folder into ubuntu.

I forgot to save the url before I came out of the Livecd, now guess what, I can't find the thread again :/

Basically the thread was telling to copy my win7 fonts folder on to my ubuntu desktop, which I have done.

It then went onto give me the terminal command to copy the tff files ONLY to usr/.../.../.../fonts ??

Then refresh the font cache.

If this rings anyone's bells can they provide me the terminal commands?

I would be most great full.
