Alternately, highlight the text by dragging with the left mouse button down and
paste by clicking with the middle mouse button (or both buttons if you are using a
2 button mouse with 3 button emulation).
<p class="note" ><h3 class="title">Note</h3><p>Note that the copying and pasting keyboard shortcuts use the

the TDE install does not install these fonts in a directory that

directory to the configuration file <code class="filename">/etc/fonts/local.conf</code>. This should be
the first line after &lt;fontconfig&gt;. For example:

After adding the directory, run (as root):
