This question already has an answer here:

I have about a hundred fonts that I need to install. Manually right clicking every font file and clicking install, then selecting "personal" vs "system" in a dialog that appears, and then closing it is tedious. Is there a command that will let me achieve the same effect in one shot? (I am using KDE.)

Sure, just move all of the fonts you want to install to ~/.fonts and then update the fontcache via:

fc-cache -rv

Note you might have to restart the application you want to use the fonts in for the changes to take effect.
