When I ran XF 3.3.6 I had truetype fonts working but I only remember
this much on how to configure it.
out of these servers choose the one that relates to your video card, the
driver you chose when you first configured XFree86, you can also find it
in /etc/X11/XF86Config file. CD into that server and install it.
copy all the truetype fonts from your windows machine into
now rename every font to lower case (they have to be lower case or else
it won't work). At this point you have to install
/usr/ports/x11-fonts/ttmkfdir, after this I think you have to cd into
your TrueType directory and run this command which will create another
file inside that directory, I'm not totally sure about this part though,
maybe someone here can correct me.
the last step is to edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config (I don't remember
where this file is under 3.3.6, it might under /etc) and go to font
section, it looks like this:
The just add
put it in third counting from the top line. See if it works.
