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.

Can you see the font in another program ? (notepad for example) – Ofiris Dec 21 '12 at 22:51

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.

This is not a solution, but rather a workaround. – gronostaj Feb 28 '15 at 19:59
I installed it in the directory, it's still not working – Rockstar5645 5 hours ago
