I know i haven’t posted in a while.
I’m working on a friend’s web site, and needed a specific font for the title graphic. I couldn’t find it anywhere as a free TTF download for my Linux machine. However, after asking a friend who’s a Mac user, I got a .dfont file as an email attachment.
After some quick Googling, I came by the fondu project on SourceForge. I didn’t look into it in depth, but I just grabbed the i386 RPM, installed it, and - magic! The in the directory with my .dfont I now also had .ttf fonts for all of the variants!
