If I could get better fonts the Linux version works better for me, how

On SuSE Linux I just import them automatically into X-Server (via
Control Center or YaST). Maybe read some documentation of your
distribution?! If you're running a windows license you're allowed to use
even TTF's on Linux, via symbolic links (and no copying) you even don't
break any licensing rules. Otherwise look "";
(german) for free fonts or treat google the right way. (Some
distributions include a lot of free fonts.)

I didn't think dia used the X fonts but maybe it does.

I'm not sure how to install new fonts on Slackware, that's my basic
problem.  "man -k font" doesn't produce anything useful that I can

The most likely place to drop .ttf files is
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype.  I think that's defined by LSB and
X together.  That's what I use on RedHat & SuSE.
