I dont understand that. What type of file should that file be? When I save a file using notepad, it automatically gets the ending .txt.

@thomass: Thank you very much!
I have just successfully installed some new fonts using the described method! It worked fine on my brandnew PW. The knowledge here and the possibilities these devices offer are both amazing! Thanks!

The USE_ALT_FONTS method works on KPW 5.3.5.

I am sooooo disappointed, this method worked great on my paperwhite 1 but works no longer on my paperwhite 2 with firmware 5.4.0. Anybody have an idea why?

The PW2 has a folder called "fonts" in the system folder, don't think PW1 had that. I am sure someone will come up with a way to do this eventually. BTY, I tried putting fonts in that folder and it made no difference.

I also fiddled with the Calibre collections plugin for paperwhite 1 and the plugin saw the fonts saved in the fonts folder on the root of the PW2 but of course, and as expected, could not save the font change in the collections setting dialog to the PW2.
