Hi all,

for hours now I'm trying to install new fonts for gimp. Freefont and
sharefont have been easy to install, but I don't succeed to install the
truetype fonts (I'm trying first to install only verdana)

I installed xfs as it is consulted in its install-text, then I read a
lot of text in my SuSE-manual, but it doesn't help, it just confuses.

My fonts are in:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts                    the encodings tarball in
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings     the truetype fonts in:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fontstt                  inside there is now:
fonts.dir, verdana.ttf

verdana.ttf -microsoft-verdana-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1

in XF86Config I have set the paths:
FontPath       "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/sharefont"
FontPath       "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/ttfonts/fonts.dir"
FontPath       "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/encodings.tar"

I also tried to set :
FontPath      "tcp/localhost:7100"   But after the reboot I couldn't
start the Xserver anymore and I had to remove it.

and there is: /etc/xfs.config

What can I do? What is the fault?

Some help would be very pleasant

Thank you             Hago
