previously I used the TTF fonts SP Ionic, SP Achmimic, Alchemy and Astrolog in my writings. I did this both in Word Perfect and WinWord. These fonts are not among the default Open Office fonts. Can I add them? How?

Copy .ttf's to (a folder in) /usr/share/fonts.

How to copy? Clicking and dragging the icon to the /usr/share/fonts/ttf folder does not work. I drag, the icon flies back to the desktop.

You'll need to do it as root. Something along the lines of:

Code:
$ sudo mkdir /usr/share/fonts/extras
$ sudo cp /home/your_username/Desktop/font_name.ttf /usr/share/fonts/extras

Otherwise install Krusader and start that as root.

Krusader

With it you can copy files across (from what's on side of the screen to the other), create directories, create links, and delete files and directories (but as with rm at the command line you won't thereafter even find them in your Trash/Wastebasket).

Check for it in apt/Synaptic.
