I want to install Korean font.
I think I can read Korean web page, after install Korean font.

Sorry, I searched some pages as google,
But I could not find easy answer.

How can I install new font?
Should I have to copy font and paste it in some folder?
Or install font add program?

Hi lailju1979.
Try to copy your Korean font in .ttf format to /usr/share/fonts/TTF

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls /usr/share/fonts/TTF
DejaVuSans-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSans.ttf
DejaVuSansMono-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSansMono-BoldOblique.ttf
DejaVuSansMono.ttf
DejaVuSerif-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSerif.ttf
fonts.dir
guest@porteus:~$
