New Font Repo for openSUSE

Adding fonts is pretty easy in openSUSE (and in GNU/Linux) generally - create a dir in /usr/share/fonts dump your ttfs in it run fc-cache or SuSEconfig (under openSUSE or SLE)and you are done.

However having a repo of about a hundred fonts that can be added from Yast is just heaven sent. Add the repo and refresh it:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/M17N/openSUSE_12.1/ Fonts

zypper ref Fonts

And you are good to go.

It also has support for openSUSE 11.4, Tumbleweed, SLE 11 and Factory.
