Guys, trying to add a particular font onto Gimp, I have managed to find and download the font in .ttf format, I understand it needs to be copied and pasted into the fonts folder in gimp, how do I do this ?

Thanks.

Install the fonts to the entire system with Font Manager. Gimp will find it.

Hi, thanks for the reply, I have opened the .ttf folder with font viewer and pressed 'install', will that do it ?

If not can you give me a step by step direction how to install into Font manager.

Thanks.

I think Font viewer can install fonts. You may have to open GIMPs settings and force a rescan of the font cache.

Hi, thanks for you input, yes it worked. I installed from font viewer and shut down gimp and started it up again and it was in the font list.
