Microsoft Core Fonts in Ubuntu 9.10

Asked by Jørgen Farum Jensen on 2010-03-29

In my earlier version of Ubuntu Software Central contained
a Microsoft Core Fonts package. This is not available in
the 9.10 version.
Is this support discontinued or is there another way
to get some more common fonts on my system?

Best regards
Jørgen Farum Jensen

Jørgen,

You should find an:

ttf-mscorefonts-installer - Installer for Microsoft TrueType core fonts

In Ubuntu Software Center or Synaptic if you don't see it in either you can always use "sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer".

Best of luck,
George

run terminal and type:
sudo aptitude (or apt-get if you like) install msttcorefonts
or find 'msttcorefonts' in synaptic, adept, kpackageinstaller, gnome-app-install or ubuntu software center

Can you help with this problem?
