Salut Nico ;)

Yep, it's what I did, cos' I it was really aking too much time to start
apps.. The font cache file was 8Mo and the font folder around 550Mo !
lol ;)
At least, I learned something, never install too much fonts on your
system! lol

Now, I keep them in another directory where I can browse them and
install the needed one at the right time...
