View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Fonts in Wine and issues with Compiz

January 25th, 2009, 10:18 PM
I'm trying to run some software in WINE, but it displays an error about the TTF font ariel. I've tried searching and couldn't find much about how to install the fonts. I know they go in /home/username/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts, but where do I find the fonts files to copy into there?

I'm also having an issue with Compiz. I have a dark grey/black theme, and whenever I run the program the whole screen turns black (same as the theme) and only a small section of the window is still visible. If I drag that window around, I can see my other apps/desktop/menu bars, but it happens every few seconds. Is there a way to run Wine apps smoothly with Compiz enabled?

Thanks for the help.

Edit: I have installed ubuntu-restricted-extras and remember something about it fetching quite a few TTF fonts, so I may have the files, but I don't know where they are stored.

Copy from a Windows machine or look around on google for a download of the ttf's.
