I wanted to create a meme image manually in Gimp but I didn’t have the required font (Impact). What now?
The remedy is here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Microsoft_fonts. I have a dual boot machine with Windows and Linux, so I decided to put a link on Windows’ Fonts folder (I didn’t want to copy 550+ MB fonts).
# ln -s /mnt/Windows/Fonts /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts # fc-cache
The prompt “
#” means a root shell. Restart Gimp and the Windows fonts will be available.

I read about it @hup (in Hungarian).
