This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

One of the answers in the question above covers this very well. – fossfreedom Jan 6 '12 at 23:29

Just for your user? Create a hidden directory in your home folder named .fonts. Drop all your fonts in the directory.

mkdir .fonts

Copy the fonts to that directory. Voila!
