To add fonts to the core X font subsystem (xfs), follow these steps:
  1. If it does not already exist, create a directory called /usr/share/fonts/local/ using the following command as root:
    mkdir /usr/share/fonts/local/
    If creating the /usr/share/fonts/local/ directory is necessary, it must be added to the xfs path using the following command as root:
    chkfontpath --add /usr/share/fonts/local/
  2. Copy the new font file into the /usr/share/fonts/local/ directory
  3. Update the font information by issuing the following command as root:
    ttmkfdir -d /usr/share/fonts/local/ -o /usr/share/fonts/local/fonts.scale
  4. Reload the xfs font server configuration file by issuing the following command as root:
    service xfs reload
