Perl Script issue....

Well, I went here:

And I DL'd the Perl Script....and when I type in the executable command to DL all the fonts (perl I got this message on my script:

oicdn@linux:~/Documents/Programs/Tars/downloadFonts> perl
Can't locate LWP/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at line 3.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 3.

How do I fix the issue so I can have different fonts?

You're missing the perl useragent module. Go to and find that module (probably called LWP::UserAgent). Download and install that module (usually by untarring, then doing 'perl') following the instructions. Then try again.
