TTF install in one click

I know that many debian distributions can install TTF fonts in only one click. Why Q4OS it doesn't? When i tried, it's only able to see the font and print it. For what someone (in his right sense) will download a font for only see it?

Re: TTF install in one click

I usually copy (or extract zipfile) to the hidden folder (you may need to create this first) ~/.fonts/ and then run the command fc-cache -f -v and the fonts are now "installed" for your user, but if you want them available for all users you could put them in the folder /usr/local/share/fonts/ and then fun the fc-cache command to update them.

I know this is not a "one-click solution" but it is how I have done it for years is easy and reliable.

I think windows makes me very lazy... couse I really don't want to use a command line. But I'll try your solution. -anyway, a think that the Q4OS team could implement something for this.

Re: TTF install in one click

I was just testing a service menu and noticed you can already install from the right click menu so I guess that is what you also found. smile
