Bitstream Fonts

Looks like Bitstream made good on their promise and released the Vera font family for free to the public. This should help the fonts on linux tremendously. I've installed them on my RedHat box and they're very sexy.

On Redhat 8.0+ simply create a directory ~/.fonts, place the .ttf files in the directory and restart X (logout). Viola! Sexy free fonts!

Update: You can place global fonts for all users in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/
