It would help immensely, if it did not contradict the advice given by 
other savants in the group when I previously asked the question. How do 
I identify the truth?

Is it your usr/share/fonts/ or /.fonts or /TTF or 

Why are there multiple answers? Why are there multiple places? Why is 
nothing ever straightforward in Linux?

I have work to do, and I can't do it with a setup that is already this 
time around going on a week.
