Inport fonts?

OK, I’m having trouble importing fonts. every time I click the “Load Font” button, and select a font. it appears to work fine, but when I go to the fonts list it’s not there. what do I do?

it gives me a “no FontMatrix found!” message

What kind of fontformat are you trying to use? Blender can import both PostScript Type 1 fonts and True Type fonts, according to the manual. Does it happen to all the fonts you import?

it happens on all the fonts I import, I’ve tried both truetype, and postscript fonts, it doesn’t work on either of them. I normaly use linux, so I fired up blender on windows, and it works there, but when I open the file saved by windows with the font packaged into it under linux, blender crashes.

Maybe this link gives an answer:
