Lets say you have just downloaded a .tff font file, but don't know how to use it within OpenOffice.
1. Browse to your home directory (e.g. /home/bob/)
2. Click on "View" and tick the "Show Hidden Files" option.
3. Now a bunch of folders should become visible.
4. Look for the ".fonts" folder. If you cannot find it, create it.
5. Copy the .tff font files into this folder.
6. Restart OpenOffice
