Open the fonts folder and see if these fonts are hidden. If so change them to show. You should be able to select them all at once and change from hide to show.

Hi critical3,

I've just tried a couple from the site you mentioned (jellyka_gare_de_chambord and infected) and they both installed correctly. I downloaded them to my downloads folder, extracted them to the same folder and the right-clicked on the extracted file and selected Install. Which fonts are you having trouble with?
