Hi Killermoehre,

Would love to.  How?   EPEL or Extra Packages for Enterprise
Linux refuses as our heroes at Xfce insist on using bleading edge 
dependancies that are not supported in EL 6.x.  I wish Xfce
would not do that, but that is a battle I lost a long time ago ...

That explains a lot.

It is an IRS Schedule C tax form.

Now this is interesting:

$ fc-match 'Helvetica LT Std'
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

$ rpm -qa \*msttcorefonts\*

I should have the font.

I will ask the distro about a font manager.

Thank you for helping me with this

Computers are like air conditioners.
They malfunction when you open windows
