Re: TT Fonts added to ~/.fonts not available in OO or Gimp

I like to make my fonts globally available so...

# mkdir /usr/share/fonts/ttf
# chkfontpath -a  /usr/share/fonts/ttf
# cd /usr/share/fonts/ttf
# ttmkfdir > fonts.scale
# mkfontdir
# reboot

If you need to add more fonts, you do not mkdir or chkfontpath
I have found I need to reboot to make them work in The GIMP. Why?
I have no idea but that is what I do.
