If I first work in Windows environment then move to Linux, do I just copy all the fonts in the Windows system font folder into the Linux system font folder?

I'll be using xelatex and fontspec.

save the fonts in /usr/local/share/fonts and then run sudo fc-cache -r If you have a lot of fonts then create the subdirectories opentype and truetype in the fonts directory. This makes it easier to find a specific font.
