Gimp doesn't distinguish fonts....
I'm using Gimp 2.6.11 on Ubuntu 11.04 and I have two fonts in my .fonts/b directory: "Biting My Nails.ttf" and "Biting My Nails Outline.ttf". The problem is Gimp doesn't give me the regular "Biting My Nails," rather, it gives me two "Biting My Nails Outline" calling them both "Biting My Nails." I've checked with LibreOffice and it sees the two okay and distinguishes between the two just fine. Any way to make GIMP see that they're two different fonts?

Well, in my Ubuntu font viewer, the "Outline" version shows as "Regular", so I can't really blame Gimp (and any other software that relies on the standard font manager).

Any suggestions what I can do to have both regular and outline?

Find the specs of the TTF fonts and patch the outline font to return a correct name. Or tell the author. Or file a bug against the font manager...
