    More Fonts for GIMP

    Where can I find more fonts? And how do I install? I don't even have any script fonts and trying to come up with different web graphics is getting hard especially since I don't have what I want.

    Re: More Fonts for GIMP

    There are tonnes of free good-quality fonts on the web; the problem I find isn't lack of fonts, but too many of the things!

    I especially like Dafont, which is well organized, easy to search, and links to the font author's websites & other works. Dafont also makes it easy to check how complete a font is - does it have numerals, most punctuation, etc.

    There are also lots and lots of paid fonts out there, many of them are very, very good quality. Professional-grade fonts are not cheap, however.
    Trying really hard to not be a future-hating curmudgeon. Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper was the best desktop ever...

    And I put all my required .ttf fonts I got from dafont in:

    Code:
    usr/share/fonts/truetype/myfonts
    ..."myfonts" is a directory I created for that purpose.

    Then I open up terminal to refresh the font cache:

    Code:
    sudo fc-cache -f -v
    And you should be good to go with GIMP.
