I had to set up a new PI and having to go back and get some things done -- my memory sucks. I need to get the font "Impact" and I'm sure I must have used Synaptic to get it.
If I use Synaptic again, what do I look for?
Better yet, I'd like to avoid installing Synaptic and get just the font package that has Impact. so, apt-get install what? and then what folder do I put the font in (unless it installs itself) -- thanks !!
