[Discuss] Installing a Font in Fedora 28

Hi Nancy,

It looks like there are several packages that include Greek fonts available to install via dnf.

Perhaps in a terminal run this to install some of those packages?
sudo dnf install gdouros-aegean-fonts gfs-solomos-fonts gfs-jackson-fonts

You can also use dnf to search the available packages:
dnf search greek font
