Actually, on by self-made Linux box, with its 1 500GB & 2 1TB
drives, I am running
1. Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid
2. Ubuntu 11.04 Natty, Gnome fallback --- I simply hate Unity & even
if my 'box was happy to run it faster than light, I wouldn't be. So
the fallback is ideal for me.
3. Debian 6 Squeeze -- Gnome 3 desktop, not entirely thrilled with
this either; I feel that Gnome 2.x was better in some ways.
4, Fedora 15 Lovelock, Gnome 3 desktop ------ good - but different
enough that it really makes me think about everything I do.... Not yet
intuitive for me, but I haven't given up - not yet...
I downloaded two fonts from openfontslibrary, opened them with
Archive Manager, then opened the font itself with font viewer and
clicked 'install' button in lower left corner of window [all this is in
11.04 Natty, Gnome fallback... I did have to log off & log back on, but
after I had, the two fonts are now in the .fonts folder of my home
folder and is included in the fonts list of Libre Office Writer.
Thanks very much
