Installing TTF FONTS in Ubuntu 9.10

After spending a few hours looking and trying out suggestions from various places on the Internet. An All User Install of TTF Fonts goes
like this:

sudo su
password
cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype
mkdir 500fonts
cd /home/user/Desktop/500fonts
cp -r *.TTF /usr/share/fonts/truetype/500fonts
exit
sudo fc-cache -fv  (* note the space after the word cache)
password

after a few moments...

exit
exit

It looks at all the fonts in the Font Cache and re-installs them. So if you have a Windows Font CD of TTF Fonts, you can now use it in LINUX.
You can add the ones out of the list to the open office folder, in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/openoffice, and they should appear in
OpenOffice.
