I admit that I don't know anything about qtPOV-Ray.  For my plain old
POV-Ray 3.7 on Debian I have a file /etc/povray/3.7/povray.ini which
contains some library paths:

  Library_Path="/usr/share/povray-3.7"
  Library_Path="/usr/share/povray-3.7/ini"
  Library_Path="/usr/share/povray-3.7/include"

You can also add user specific paths in $HOME/.povray/3.7/povray.ini
without root privileges.

That might be slightly beyond the scope of this list :) Anyway, the file
manager on Linux desktops is very similar to the Windows Explorer.  From
the command line, one example seems to be ok:

   $ find /windata/                  -name "*.ttf"
          ^where to start searching        ^what to search
