Download the fonts or get them from MS windows. Make a directory in /usr/share/fonts called msttf. Copy the truetype fonts there and do "mkfontdir" and "mkfontscale" in that directory (/usr/share/fonts/msttf). Log out and in again and your fonts will be ready for use. If you use GNOME, you may need to copy the fonts to ~/.fonts as well.
hmm, sorry, but i dont find a simple file containing the ms-fonts. ms discontinued free download of their fonts.
what i did find was an installation instruction at http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/
and downloads at
but the installation seems quite complicated, at least for a newbie......:-)
so my question is:
by posting: "Download the fonts or get them from MS windows. Make a directory........."
did you mean the installation way depicted in the urls above or is their really just a simple font file which i can download
and copy in /usr/share/fonts/msttf and then follow the rest of your instructions?
if yes, do you know where i can find that files? i only found the above posted links........
thx so far for the help
