linux/ gimp and fonts

mainly so i dont forget myself:

cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype
ln -s /media/wxp/WINDOWS/Fonts windows-fonts # creates a sym link to my windows font folder, wxp is the ‘root’ of my C:\ drive in windows

Then run fc-cache to update the fontcache, and any programs which use fontconfig e.g. The Gimp will use the new fonts
