    Question fonts for GIMP: how do you get them to work in Tiger?
    Dear All

    I have trawled for hours on the net trying to find a simple...rather un-techy explanation to this, and have now given up.

    Basically I downloaded some fonts in the hope that I will be able to use them in GIMP, the open-source graphics software. Gimp did find the fonts, however they appeared completely wrong, and were defaulted to arial or something boring like that.

    So can someone please tell me how to get fonts to work in GIMP.

    I am using Tiger 10.4.11 on an intel based macbook. X11 works fine as well for info.

    Anyones help will be much appreciated!

    Here is a link to a possible fix which involves the Gimp Preferences.

    Good luck ~ it is halfway down the page:-
