now easily install ttf/otf fonts in fedora 10 using kfontview (kfontinst)

today i was trying to read news from http://onlinenews.lokmat.com, but it is using custom encoding font so i downloaded it..

I was planning to install it using regular mkfontdir, fc-cache command but was feeling bit lazy to do that..
just thinking can i just install it using just one click and yes now we can do that.

kfontview is now have that feature.

Just right click on any .ttf font file and open with kfontview

It will show you characters in fonts and also there is install buttton (It will be disables in font already installed ) just click on that, now restart your application in which you want to see same font and its d one

I am still remembering those days when windows user were calling me only for installing font for testing it in there Linux machine, It is very good for them now they can easily install and test font without any help :)

I think gnome-font-viewer is now disabled.
