    Re: Display Microsoft fonts like on Windows

    Ok, I finally found a solution. I updated my XML files, please go ahead and follow the original tutorial again. Now fonts in Firefox are going to look good, just like in Windows

    Hi guys i take this error
    Extraction not performed

    You don't have the right permissions to extract archives in the folder "/etc/fonts"
    .Why?I do not have other user.

    Nope, you need root privilege. Here's how you would do:
    Code:
    sudo tar -xvjpf nicefonts.tbz /etc/fonts/
    And type your root password when requested

    Ok, where did you put your "nicefonts.tbz" file? I'll assume you stored in your Desktop. If so, here's what you're gonna do instead:

    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop
    sudo tar -xvjpf nicefonts.tbz /etc/fonts/

    Works perfect now! How did you fix it? I spent several hours trying to make firefox look "good" and got nowhere.

    I also fixed mine. Before I had my font config files in /etc/fonts which worked for the rest of the system but not firefox or yelp. I copied them to ~/.fonts and that fixed those 2 programs as well.
