Editorial GoboLinux is a distribution which sports a different file system structure than 'ordinary' Linux distributions. In order to remain compatible with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, symbolic links are used to map the GoboLinux tree to standard UNIX directories. A post in the GoboLinux forums suggested that it might be better to turn the concept around: retain the FHS, and then use symbolic links to map the GoboLinux tree on top of it. This sparked some interesting discussion. Read on for more details.

You almost have that now. If you drop files in your .fonts/ directory in your home folder... most newer apps will pick those up right away if they're TTF.

Great. Drop your fonts into a directory that, by default, is hidden from any listing. This is exactly the problem I'm talking about.

Just browse to fonts:/// and drag'n'drop.
