Hi: After spending a few days looking and trying out suggestions from
various places on the Internet. An All User Install of TTF Fonts goes
like this:

Copy the Fonts that you have to /usr/share/fonts.

You do that this way:   sudo su
			Password
			cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype
			mkdir 500fonts
			cd /home/user/Desktop/500fonts
			cp -r *.TTF /usr/share/fonts/truetype/500fonts
			exit
			sudo fc-cache -fv               (## note the space after the word
cache)
			Password
after a few moments
			exit
			exit

 It looks at all the fonts in the Font Cache and re-installs them. So if
you have a Windows Font CD of TTF Fonts, you can now use it in LINUX.

You can add the ones out of the list to the open office folder,
in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/openoffice, and they should appear in
openoffice.

Alfred!
PS
Now just figuring out how to add the Bookmarks from 7.10 to 8.10
