OK on Ubuntu is actually usr/local instead of opt.

This is what the (c) statement says:

"? 2000, 2004 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. U.S.
Patent D454,582"

Having never (knowingly) ventured into (c) fonts - what does this
actually mean?  Does it mean I can't distribute the font but can use it
for any purpose - eg to create a PDF and embed the font/subset the font?
I expected that there would be some reference to a licence - but all I
can see is the basic (c) statement.

However the two sites I was looking for were probably

myfonts.com (whatthefont)

Neither have come up with a hit yet!
