    Hi:

    This tutorial will demonstrate how to add fonts to your TouchPad.

    The list of fonts the TouchPad comes with as stock are:

    Dotum_nb.ttf
    HeiS_nb.ttf
    HeiT_nb.ttf
    Heisei_Kaku_Gothic_nb.ttf
    Prelude (large group of sets)
    SegoeWP.ttf
    arial.ttf
    arialbd.ttf
    arialbi.ttf
    ariali.ttf
    cour.ttf
    courbd.ttf
    courbi.ttf
    couri.ttf
    georgia.ttf
    georgiab.ttf
    georgiai.ttf
    georgiaz.ttf
    lucon.ttf
    times.ttf
    timesbd.ttf
    timesbi.ttf
    timesi.ttf
    verdana.ttf
    verdanab.ttf
    verdanabi.ttf
    verdanai.ttf

    A complete set of MS Core Fonts for the Web isn't present. The missing core fonts are:

    Andale Mono
    Arial Black
    Comic Sans MS
    Impact
    Trebuchet MS
    Webdings

    How-to:

    (There are better ways of doing this, but this is a way that will allow for successful fumbling about.)

    1) You need to have WebOSQuickInstall on your computer system. This is a requirement for Preware, so if you have put Preware on your TouchPad, you already have this file.

    2) Connect the touchpad and select "usb drive", make a folder called /temp or something. Copy all the truetype fonts you want to this directory, I'm assuming that there will be nothing else in this directory, and that you know how to delete files from a directory when you are done. Unmount the touchpad from your computer safely.

    3) Connect the touchpad again, but this time select "close". It is possible that this step isn't even necessary, but since it was needed to install preware, I will assume so. I can't test right this second as I don't have the cable on hand atm.

    4) Execute WebOSQuickInstall. From the menu select "Linux Commandline". A terminal window should open up.

    5)
    cd /usr/share/fonts
    ls
    cp /media/internal/temp/* .
    ls
    rm /media/internal/temp/*
    exit

    6) Close the program and disconnect the TouchPad from the computer.

    7) Reboot the TouchPad. The fonts will not be picked up by the system until you do so for whatever reason.

    To see that your choice of fonts were picked up, a webpage I found that is useful to test "before" and "after" the reboot is Common fonts to all versions of Windows & Mac equivalents (Browser safe fonts) - Web design tips & tricks

    Enjoy!
