Hi, Guillermo:  Happy Thanksgiving Day wherever you are.

Well, I was expecting a change in the font selection list in Gimp1.2 after 
running fetchmsttfonts.  Didn't see it.  So, I'm thinking there has to be 
another step to take, to have Gimp see the newly installed fonts.  

Maybe you might have a manual check I could try.  Something like,
Create a new directory:   ~/gimpfonttest/
Copy a truetype font from /usr/- - - -/fonts/truetype/somefontfile to the new 
Then tell Gimp something someplace? to see it.

Thanks, Tom
