Install Fonts on Windows XP, Windows 98 and Windows 95

Copy & Paste the fonts into the Fonts Folder, usually found in C:\Windows\Fonts

Note: If you have Font Book installed, you can also double-click the font file to quickly install that font into the correct location

2. Open the System Folder

Install Fonts on GNU/Linux

This will depend on your type of GNU/Linux distro. Below is the common way on Linux.

Font collections: Use the distro repository and the package manager

Individual fonts: Move these to the directory /usr/share/fonts/. For a single user, move fonts to ~/.fonts/
