Most site uses fonts that are available on Windows – if you want to view sites as the designer of that site intended, you need these fonts. And since I am a Web Developer, and spend most of my time on various sites, I had to install it.
Its not as easy as installing other software – but its possible. This is how you do it in Fedora 7…
- Download the MS Core Fonts Smart Package File and save it as msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
- Install rpm-build and cabextract packages
yum -y install rpm-build cabextract
- Build the Core Fonts package…
rpmbuild -ba msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
- Install the package…
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm
Just as easy to install as anything else on Gentoo (“emerge corefonts”). 🙂
