How would you do this. I heard it's in winetricks, so I downloaded winetricks but it wasn't in their. I need mscorefonts to play conquer online, because it needs the font Courier 12. It doesn't have to be mscorefonts actually, I just need Courier 12 font.

This should do it:
sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
I don't know that you can install them (the Microsoft fonts) individually.

Edit: Just found this, though it's an .exe file. Maybe since you need it IN Wine it will work? I'm not a wine user...

Ensure you have multiverse repository enabled in your software sources.

Then either install msttcorefonts via synaptic package manager or install via the terminal


sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

Darn, it says I already have it installed. How can I get the Courier 12 font? I need it to play conquer online

Did you see my edit? Don't know if that will work or not...

nope, it didn't work. although, it said to go to regedit, HKLM/software/fonts and add courier 1. I got there, but I'm not sure how to add another thing in the folder.

Could you not copy and paste Courier from /usr/share/fonts to c:\Windows\system32\fonts since you have msttcorefonts installed?

I think that would work, been a long time since I've really dug in Windows so YMMV.

Well, I got the courier thing, arial and simsun fonts (following this HOWTO:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4560835#post4560835) So I got the other DLLs in the system 22, and did everything it said, but it still is stuck at the loading... part. Although when I went to winecfg, libraries, and the 2 DLLs that begin with an m (forgot what they're called, just look in the howto) weren't there. So maybe I'll fix that and see if it works.

I had the same problem solved it by loading KDE desktop in system there is a font loader, download fonts to a file on your disk then useing font loader go to this file and load.
I normaly run Gnome desktop but found this installed the fonts for all programs use.

The method of getting the msttcorefonts described here works on Ubuntu 11.10, but you end up having to agree to a long MS End User License Agreement. That is all right except that there is no obvious way to agree to it!

I finally stumbled on the key: tap the Tab key. Then the <Yes> shown on the form is highlighted and you can agree.

It is a bit simpler to go through the Ubuntu Software Center and search for the ttf-mscorefonts-installer and use it.

Also remember to log out and then log in again before trying to use the fonts.
