I am having problems with GIMP not recognising fonts as well. I too am
using ML8.2 and GIMP 1.2.3. I have a lot of TrueType fonts in a directory
/home/mike/.fonts/ which are recognised by all other applications, eg OOo,
KDE, etc but not by GIMP.
I have checked Virtual Quickstart Guide 'The GIMP for Linux & Unix', and
various FAQs from the GIMP web site but things are no clearer.
Can anyone help. I know this appears to be a common problem for new GIMP
