Linux and Fonts (Help)

Hi i've been all over the linux website trying to find how i can ADD fonts that i download interdependently of any OS.
On windows for adding new fonts you can simply down load them and then paste the opend zip files into the font folder, in Linux i can't do that, so how do i add new fonts, i'm not talking about things like times new roman, i mean things you can down load like the elven fonts from gray company and plant like fonts you can find on google. its driving me nuts most of the fonts i have on linux look rubbish, and the ones I want to download and add are so i can do my design pics with the font styles i need, which at the moment since switching i can not do.. Someone PLEASE help.
