    msttcorefonts

    I cannot find msttcorefonts in synaptic, though it is supposed to be there:

    ttf-mscorefonts-installer

    That's what you're after. What release are you using???

    Re: msttcorefonts

    Thanks. I think, once I install ttf-mscorefonts-installer I would need to run it. Would the command be 'sudo ttf-mscorefonts-installer' or something else?

    I am using 10.04 LTS.

    Just search for it in Synaptic and mark for install. You won't need any commands.

    Once installed, the fonts will be available for you to use.

    Re: msttcorefonts

    Just install it. It is the msfonts installer and therefore that's what it will do. See here:

    Disregard the second section with deals with copying fonts from a Windows install (unless you only want particular fonts and not all of them).

    According to the link, font files should be in '.Fonts' folder in home, but I read somewhere they should be in /usr/share/fonts folder?

    If installed in ~/.fonts they would only be available to that one user. If installed in /usr/share/fonts they would be available to all users (with the correct permissions, of course).

    Re: msttcorefonts

    Do you want to install specific fonts or just mscorefonts??? If the later just install the installer from Synaptics as previously mentioned. That easy. It will install all ms fonts ...
