is there any references for dealing with the fonts under unix. like
install a font, delete a font, use the font in the browser, in the
ghostview. because the default of ghostview is not so nice, i like
the font of adobe reader, but i dont know how to do with that.

What distribution are you running? If you've RH 6.0 and above, you can add your
windows ttf by just executing the following commands:

# cd /dos/windows/fonts
# ttmkfdir > fonts.dir
# chkfontpath -add /dos/windows/fonts

Good luck.
