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
