Thanks for making my entry into the world of Ubuntu (Linux) so much easier than I had read on posts for older versions of Ubuntu. This was easy on 9.10.

You don't need to restart the machine, just restart the required applications, should show up the installed fonts from the ~/.fonts directory

Worked a treat... nice one... as a non commercial DVD author, a selection of fonts is vital for my "customers" various needs/projects.

Dilip Vamanan... I didn't try your sugestion, as with over 7000 fonts, I figured it would take longer then the originally suggested method... but I reckon for one or two fonts, it probably is a tad quicker and easier!
