    Installing "Installer for Microsoft TrueType core fonts"

    When installing this software from "Ubuntu Software Centre" I mistakenly failed to accept the EULA. The package appeared to install OK but actually hadn't. Now if I remove and re-install the package I get a failed EULA pop-up with no option to correct this.

    How do I recover from this situation?

    It sounds like you haven't installed the restricted-extras package either. Its a needed package for audio/video and will include the ms fonts EULA agreement.

    Search the software center for "ubuntu restricted extras" and install.

    Should fix your problem

    Try this:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    I believe that will give you another opportunity to accept the EULA.
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    Thanks guys but I have tried both suggestions above. Neither worked. In both cases I still get the message that I have not accepted the EULA.

    I'm facing the same problem here. Is there anyway to get rid of this problem?

    Re: Installing "Installer for Microsoft TrueType core fonts"

    Instead of re-configuring ttf-mscorefonts-installer as mentioned above, have you tried to remove (purge) that package then install it later?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

    Have either of you tried scrolling down to the bottom of the licence screen and clicking the Accept button?

    I am having sort of the same issue though I do not see an accept at the bottom of the EULA. I see the word OK but nothing happens. HELP.
