View Full Version : Font question for Microsoft Office 2003

March 17th, 2009, 09:49 PM

I just installed Microsoft Office 2003 with wine, works perfectly fine. There is one problem though: It does not properly display my favorite font Arial. It displays Arial as italic Arial, and there is no normal Arial. How can I deal with that?

I also have two TTF font files from my country, which I would always drop in Windows/Fonts folder, but here I don't know where to stick them. Any suggestions?

Go to Applications > Add/Remove and install the package Microsoft Core Fonts. This should solve your problem.

Fonts are located in two places:

/Home/<yourusername>/.fonts - easy to manage


/usr/share/fonts - you'll need root access

Hope this helps.

Hi, microsoft core fonts are already installed and all fonts seem to work fine except for Arial, which is always Arial italic and you can't make it regular or bold.
