How do I install fonts?
I installed some fonts to my computer, but they aren't picked up by GIMP. Can I put them into GIMP somehow?

If you know the folder you installed them in, then open Gimp.
Under the Edit menu choose Preferences.
When the Preferences dialog appears choose Folders.
Under Fonts, make sure the directory you put your fonts in is listed. If not add the folder and save the preferences.
Then either restart Gimp, or from the Fonts dialog, Re-scan the fonts by clicking the arrows icon at the bottom of the dialog.

Note it is common practise to save the fonts in the Fonts folder in your Gimp profile, following the same answers given in this thread but substituting 'Fonts folder' where 'Scripts folder' is used.
