Mini tutorial on how to put the fonts in gimp
Step 1:
Go to the link above and browse the fonts.
After you choose one, you click the download button.
This is the one I'm using.

Step 2:
It downloads as a .zip file so you'd hafta extract it. (don't worry, I'll explain )

After you find the file (mine was in downloads but I moved it)
Select the file, then right-click on it, and click "Extract All..."

Step 3:
This is just the extraction window.
If you want to change the destination, then you can browse.

Step 4:
Double click on the unzipped file and copy or cut (Tip: I keep the files and copy the text in case I lose any of my files)
This is the item you should copy/cut x:

Step 5:
find your .gimp2.6 folder
It should look like this:

Open it then select the fonts folder

After opening the fonts folder, just paste your new font into the folder and it should be in gimp
