FONTS FOLDER

To install fonts for all users, go to Menu --> System Tools --> LXTerminal (or Ctrl+Alt+T) and Type (or copy and paste): gksu pcmanfm /usr/share/fonts

Alternatively, type (or copy and paste): gksu pcmanfm
and navigate to /usr/share/fonts

Fonts folder

The fonts folder will open. You should already see folders inside fonts for TrueType fonts and others. You may create folders anywhere inside the fonts folder, inside the already existing folders and inside each other. As long as your fonts are somewhere in the fonts folder, they will be available to all users.

Writer

If you don't see the new fonts immediately available in whatever application you are checking them out in, you may need to restart that application. If all else fails; log out and log back in.



.FONTS FOLDER
This is different. A hidden folder only visible when you choose to show it and other hidden folders. The dot fonts folder (.fonts) is one you create to make fonts inside of it available only to that user.
