xfstt TrueType font server

The instructions for using xfstt to make Truetype fonts available to X11: "1. download the xfstt truetype font server 2. compile that thing. (comment out lines 23 and 24 in xfstt.cpp because g++ complained of syntax errors in asm/byteorder.h) put the executable in your path. 3. make a directory called /usr/ttfonts and put some truetype fonts there. 4. make sure xfstt starts when X starts. (i.e., add a line to .xinitrc or whatever.) 5. tell X about the new font path. (i.e., add FontPath unix/:7100, or use xset +fp unix/:7100 in .xinitrc) 6. start the gimp and look under the foundry tab for ttf. You might have to fool around with a combination of "xset fp rehash", "xset +fp unix/:7100" and restarting the server." Alternate URL.
