As you'll see from my intro post I'm a total beginner. I downloaded wps office and it is working fine except the writer won't allow me to insert bullets. I googled and found I needed an extra symbol font set. I found that set from a google too (links on wps site are dead). So, I've unzipped the fonts which are .ttf files and they are sitting in my downloads folder.

What to do now? My googling suggests 2 ways:

1. Install font manager which I did but I've no idea what to do from here. Fiddling around produced nothing and I don't want to bust anything.

2. Install to usr/share/fonts but this too is beyond me.

Anyone fancy walking me through it?  If I get this working I can finally abandon MS both at work and home and do absolutely everything on LL.

TIA

He can try that tutorial but I'm not sure how he'll go as a beginner.
Might be easier to open home folder, do Ctrl+H to show hidden folders, look for the folder called .fonts and copy or extract the font files to there.

Jerry and bitsnpcs - thanks for the replies. I went with Jerry's way and it worked. Bullets now working. I will check out that other thread though as I'll hopefully doubt learn something.
