iimagettfbbox and font file on hosted server

I've been playing around with the iimagettfbbox function.

 

The PHP is running on a hosted unix server so I uploaded the TTF font to the same directory as my PHP and everything works.

 

Just curious if there is a way to access the "system" fonts so that I dont need to provide my own copy.

 

 

Thanks

Locate the font file on the server and point to it in the function call - just like I did in the sample I posted for you yesterday

 

 

$sz=imagettfbbox(10,0,'c:/windows/fonts/calibri.ttf',$text);

Find out what distro it is then Google the default font path. Might be in /usr/share. If there are any installed at all.

 

Or just ignore all that and upload the font you want. That's not bad or anything.
