Thread: Missing Arial font

  1. #1

    Default Missing Arial font

    Lo,
    I just installed openSuSE 11.2 and I am missing the font Arial and some other Windows fonts.
    The package liberation-fonts is installed but I remember some there where some errors during installation (could not download xyz)

    How can I reinstall these fonts? I tried to reinstall liberation-fonts already but it did not help.

    Hi lOtz1009,
    tried the package fetchmsttfonts.
    The error message is:
    Trying to find the fastest server:
    Code:
    jaist ... to slow (aborted)
    ...
    internap ... to slow (aborted)
    It seems all server the script uses are down.

    Hi
    Try the following command (all one line);
    Code:
    sudo
    sh /var/adm/update-scripts/fetchmsttfonts-11.2-6.6.12-fetchmsttfonts.sh.txt
    There were some issues with the script a while back.

    Works great. But how can I install a .exe file on a linux system?

    Now everything seems to be ok. I called the script once more and the voxel server is now available. But all others are still down.

    Big THX for helping!

    Hi
    You just need to edit the script, are you familiar with vi? else run
    using gnomesu or kdesu;
    Code:
    gnomesu
    gedit /var/adm/update-scripts/fetchmsttfonts-11.2-6.6.12-fetchmsttfonts.sh.txt
    On the line SERVER remove the jaist line and save the file, then re run.
