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.

  2. To work with pre made resources or not? That is a question that most creative people asks themselves from time to time. Even if you’re a talented artist, sometimes the deadlines are just too brief, or that spark of inspiration did not hit yet. Awkward, there are many of solutions available. In the ocean of pre-made graphic and designs that one may down load and use for his needs, one author sticks out. A fast growing Scarab13 Design Resource Site is a template bliss, packed with custom, exclusive data (all designed by Scarab13), where literally anyone can find something they require. Via Photoshop tutorials, backgrounds, activities, brushes – to some more advanced posters, catalogues, mock-ups and banners – it’s all here and able to download. Since one of the most popular Envato authors, Scarab13 has mastered the artwork of designing creative documents (in all topics/genres), documents that are complex in their technical execution, but very simple in their usage, being geared toward users who may or may have not know about Photoshop; thus are simple to operate & modify and tweak in minutes, going out of you with some very professional and beautiful designs for Print, Web, Portable, TV, and all other outlets.
