I wanted to use the free Pricedown font in a Gimp process. First I put it 
in  my home directory:
/home/safe/.gimp-2.6/fonts/pricedow.ttf
Gimp didn't find it. 
Then I put it in 
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/pricedow.ttf
Gimp didn't find it. 
Then I put it in /usr/share/gimp/2.0/fonts/pricedow.ttf
Gimp found it. 

Now we are a long way from 2.0. Why do I have to put a font in there to be 
found?  And why doesn't the online Gimp manual say anything about font 
installation? 

Slackware 13 Linux, Gimp 2.6.6
