No need for Fondu
Authored by: jasenko on Jan 14, '03 06:47:14PM

I don't know about but majority of X11 apps are using xft. To enable Mac fonts all you have to do is to edit /etc/X11/XftConfig file and add your Mac fonts paths. Add something like this

dir "/System/Library/Fonts"
dir "/Library/Fonts"
dir "~/Library/Fonts"

Restart X, and all your fonts are now available for gtk, kde or whatever apps you have

How about GIMP?

I don't have any fonts in ~/Library/Fonts, and the other directories are already in XftConfig. Nonetheless, The GIMP (fink installed) won't let me use any of those fonts in images. Any thoughts?

Gimp was probably not xft-aware. You probably have a version that is not compiled with gnome support. Gnome can use xft and anti aliasing so there is probably your problem.
I installed Pan (newsreader) and when I'm choosing fonts, I have all mac fonts on the list.
Try installing gtk2 and unstable gimp version (1.3.x)
