Recently, I searched via google.com and yahoo.com for setting up TrueType fonts under Fedora Core 2. I found some good information and tried what was suggested. The problem I have right now, and cannot find a useful suggestion for, is that logged in as root, I can see all the fonts I have installed fine, with just a normal user account I cannot see more than the default fonts in Fedora Core 2. I used the following urls in my initial attempts:

http://www.ces.clemson.edu/linux/fc2T42-2.shtml

http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-fc2.shtml#ttf

What is the recommended way to get these fonts viewable as a normal user and not just root?

Thank you.

Check out the path /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF
If your files are in the path, then you can check the permissions whether the permissions are r for user r for group and r for others.
If not, then try setting the permissions using chmod ugo+r for all the ttf files in the above directory path.
