Topic: Adding TTF fonts to X

This guide has been tested on XFree86 on NetBSD.

The first thing you need to do is see where the TTF fonts are located according to the XF86Config file:

# cat /etc/X11/XF86Config | grep TTF
FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF"

Drop all your TTF fonts into that directory, then, update the X server with the changes:

# cd /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF
# mkfontdir

That's it ... now when you start X, the TTF fonts will be ready for selection
