Hi Gary,

as far as I know, you are using KDE, which makes things pretty easy. You 
can just use Konqueror to browse to your fonts and use the appropriate 
option in the context menu to install the selected fonts.

If you want to do the font installation by hand, as you described, you 
have to make sure that X is aware of the directory where your font 
files reside and that the directory is properly prepared. This is best 
described in the handbook:

I hope that helps.
