Make a .fonts directory in your home directory and add some fonts to it. If you have a windows xp system you could copy the fonts. Then you need to run these commands
# mkfontscale /home/your ~ directory/.fonts
# mkfontdir /home/your ~ directory/.fonts
# fc-cache -v /home/your ~ directory/.fonts
   Good luck
