Re: [vox-tech] gimp fonts question


debian doesn't have gfontsel, but it does have gfontview.  what a great app!
i just spent the last 10 minutes playing around and having fun with it.

gfontview was able to view my TT fonts, but i had to tell it what directory
they're in.  once it knew their location, it viewed them fine.

i take this to be a bad omen.  my X config file is set up correctly.  and in
fact, many other apps can view these TT fonts.  since i'm using X 4.0, my TT
fonts should be as transparent to use as any other font.

well, i just wanted to make sure people here can access TT fonts from within
gimp.  if anyone has immediate ideas, i'm all ears.

at this point, i'm heading over to deja.com...
