Installing Microsoft Fonts on Ubuntu 8.10

If you have already installed Restricted Formats, the Microsoft fonts will already be installed on your system. So there’s no need to install them again.

If you haven’t installed Restricted Formats, then execute the following commands in Terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) to install the Microsoft fonts.

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

sudo fc-cache -f -v

The restricted Microsoft fonts will now be available for use.

    Thanks for this post. It saved me a lot of time trying to copy the fonts over.
