I think abiword is not able to use your ttf fonts
because they have an uppercase extension (I just fixed
this problem with my xft patch, but I think that there
is a second assumption like this one in the code that
I've not yet fixed).
for i in *.TTF; do mv $i `echo $i | sed -e
should do the work (the script is untested, so do a
copy of your fonts before executing it!).
