Installing Font in Fedora

Recently I needed to print a receipt with Barcode. But the particular webpage was not showing the Barcode.

I googled and found a very helpful page and I followed the steps and then I was able to achieve my goal.

The link I am talking about is http://www.cb1.com/~john/notes/fedora-font-install.html. I followed the first option.

First I donwloaded the font library and then installed using kfontview.

type kfontview from the command line.
if kfontview is not available then install it by typing yum install kdebase  from the command line.

From the kfontview window, open the font you have downloaded. Click on the "Install". Thats all , now close all your browse instances and again
open the page with Barcode . You should be able to view it properly
