How to install mscorefonts in Ubuntu 9.10

It seems from what I’ve read around the interwebs, the package name might have changed. Also, in my fresh installation from the LiveCD, the Microsoft Core Fonts listed in the Ubuntu Software Center doesn’t have an install button. Fear not, though.

Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal). Type this and press enter:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Wait for it to do it’s magic and you should be good to go. If you run into problems, I suggest starting at Google. Installing the MS core fonts seems to be an issue in this release, but then again maybe I don’t know because I’ve never had problems with it before.

Hope you liked it. If so, maybe share it, comment, or link. Many thanks.
