    Actually its more like 1000 fonts...lol =P
    Just copy all the fonts in the folder and paste them into YOUR WINDOWS/Fonts folder...dont just use this Fonts folder cause i am pretty sure that the system wont recognize it as a Windows Fonts folder anymore. =P

    Another thing...i wouldn't copy and paste all 1000 fonts at once, it will take forever to install...lol
    oh and just another added thought...i would only copy and paste the font files, im not sure what else is in there.

    Here is the link...the dl is 51.7 MB zip folder (like i said alot of fonts) .. let me know if this works.

    I won't need to put it into a windows folder? just the Gimp one?

    -edit- I extracted all 1000 some odd fonts to the Gimp 2.7 Font Folder, but the exact same thing happened, with the error report thing :(

    Firstly, i dont know where you downloaded the file too i assume your desktop.
    1) extract the folder to its own folder on the desktop or whatever folder you downloaded the zip file to, doesn't matter what you name it.
    2) open the folder and or folders until you get to the fonts.
    3) copy and paste all the fonts and just the fonts to your system folder which will be here.
    C:\Windows\Fonts
    there are TTF and open type in it, copy and paste all of them.



    Don't create another folder to put them in, you should already have a system fonts folder.This is a dif type of folder.

    Let me know if that works..
