Can Linux Use True Type Fonts?
Yes. There are a number of True Type font servers for the X Window
System. One of them is xfsft. Its home page is
http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/jec/programs/xfsft/. There are also
instructions for configuration.
People have reported success with other True Type font servers. There
are links from the xfsft Home Page to them as well.
You can also compile True Type Font support into your X server
directly. Again, refer to the xfsft Home Page for details.
