wa4chq Posted January 24, 2021 Share Posted January 24, 2021 Greetings. This may be common knowledge but I'll pass it on anyway. I enjoy using Gimp but when I wanna add some text to a project I'm working on, I hate having to scroll through a lot of fonts I'll never use. Turns out, the default fonts are system-wide and not Gimps. To remove the ones I didn't want, I had to first become root. From there I had to go into /usr/share/fonts/truetype and select the folder that contained the unwanted fonts. I used Ranger to manage this. To make sure I didn't do something I'd regret, I renamed the folder, saved it away then deleted the original. Once done, I rebooted and opened up Gimp. I looked through my fonts and the unwanted ones were gone! BTW, the folder with those fonts is called "noto". Now to download more cool fonts. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
