I am trying to download a Google Web Font to Gimp 2.8. I copied and pasted the TTF file to the fonts library, restarted Gimp, but the font still does not show up. I am working on Windows Vista.
Am I missing something? Thanks for helping.
According to the GIMP documentation, GIMP 2.8 does accept TTF files. Instead of adding directly to GIMP's fonts folder, add it to Windows fonts directory. A search for 'fonts' immediately shows the file. Adding the file here will make it usable in all applications, including GIMP.
