In my Slackware Linux system I put all types of fonts in
/usr/share/fonts. There are separate subfolders as follows:
/usr/share/fonts is the default place for Scribus to find fonts.
Scribus finds the Type1, TTF and OTF flavors.
Linotype is a font vendor of many decades experience. All their
products are reliable. But you can also cadge some fonts from the
GhostScript package and the TeX package. This means some rooting
around using command line strings. For example you can do something
find / -name '*ttf'
find / -name '*TTF'
to get the locations of all the Truetype fonts on your system. You can
then link them into the /usr/share/fonts/TTF directory thus:
ln (location)/fontname.ttf /usr/share/fonts/TTF
You can also instruct Scribus to look in additional directories. See
the Manual for details.
