There is an article in Fedora Magazine from 2 years ago that describes the process. Please let us know if this works for you.

Open the Files application in your Fedora Workstation, or a similar file manager app of your choice. If you’re using Files , you may need to use the Ctrl+H key combination to show hidden files and folders. Look for the .fonts folder and open it. If you don’t have a .fonts folder, create it. (Remember the leading dot and to use all lowercase.)

Copy the font file you’ve downloaded to your .fonts folder. You can close the file manager at this point. Open a terminal and type the following command:


You may also copy your fonts to /usr/share/fonts/ to make them available for all users on the system (then run fc-cache with root permissions)


Where is this directory ?

This is on your “slash root” partition: /usr/share/fonts. Run ls -l /usr/share/fonts to list the content.
You can only write as root oder superuser to that directory (When you copy from your Downloads folder, use sudo, meaning sudo cp *.ttf /usr/share/fonts. Be careful what you do with sudo - it has super powers.
