    Do You have mscorefonts installed?

    Hello Ubuntu-ers,

    I'm working on a massive lists of fonts installed by various operating systems and I'm wondering how common it is for Ubuntu users to have mscorefonts. I'd appreciate it if you could help me out and let me know if you have it installed.

    If you don't know, check to see if you have Verdana or Georgia available. If you do, you have mscorefonts.

    P.S. This is my first post and I hope I haven't posted it in the wrong forum! It didn't seem to go anywhere else

    Is that you Bill? Are you going to do us for using your fonts?
    Sick of cd'ing to a folder? sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal Log out then back in. Right click in the folder, select Open in terminal
    Need to compile something? sudo apt-get install build-essential

    I have masses of fonts installed, many copied over from various windows programs I installed in my winXP days. Some of them were needed to keep the formatting in large documents I first made in windows and then copied over to ubuntu. It was a PITA to keep reformatting so I just decided to get all the fonts I had, far more than I need but they don't seem to slow up a system these days as they used to.

    Yes, yes, yes. I need msttcorefonts to be able to browse the web without wincing at the iffy replacements for Georgia and Trebuchet. Even this Ubuntu-operated website uses the fonts.

    I did install them ages ago when I first put Feisty on the PC. I got rid of them almost immediately. I just prefer the look of the free ones in Ubuntu. No other reason, be it zealousness, militancy, or otherwise.

    Nope. The free ones are fairly decent and as an added bonus, I don't have to see that comic sans font.

    Nope, then again I think I may be incapable of telling one font from another, so it doesn't really matter for me.

    The Redhat Liberation fonts work just as well as the microsoft ones. Just need to convert the rpm with alien to .deb if you can't stand to use Microsoft fonts.
