Subject sounds confusing, but I am using Linux SoftMaker. I want to install a .ttf (Palatino Linotype) into my SoftMaker. I already installed it in my Linux Mint (20.1) into my Fonts folder and Libre Office recognizes it, but not SoftMaker. How do I get SoftMaker to recognize the already installed font?
Instead of just pasting the font file in the folder, please open the file and click on the install button to actually install the font. After this SoftMaker Office will be able to use this new font.
I figured it out. Here is how to do it. Go to Home directory, then usr/share/fonts/truetype. (This is of course if you are downloading truetype fonts) Right click in open space and click "Create Folder." Name the folder whatever you want, then copy your downloaded fonts you got from the internet into that folder. It was ONLY when I did this did SoftMaker "find" the font. Must be something in the code that makes SoftMaker not look in the other Mint folders storing fonts.
