    Default MS Fonts

    I used the instructions located at Ben Kevan’s Blog > Installing Microsoft Fonts on openSUSE 11.0 to install MS fonts. As I prefer the way suse looked before, I would like to uninstall these fonts.

    How do I do this?

    Personally, I moved the windows fonts over from my vista laptop and installed them with KDE's font manager. This helps in messenger world to when people insist on using [insert font here] for their typing.

    I skimmed the file it had you download, even though I'm not much of a coder, and it seems the only fonts it retrieved were these:

    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/andale32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/arial32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/arialb32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/comic32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/courie32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/georgi32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/impact32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/times32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/trebuc32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/verdan32.exe \
    dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/webdin32.exe \

    Judging from the script it downloaded the fonts and an rpm, and after extracting moved them by running:

    mv -f *.tt[cf] /usr/share/fonts/truetype

    There is probably a more efficient way to do this, like I said, I'm not a coder, I could be entirely wrong, but I would open up Konqueror (Or nautilus if you use gnome) as root, navigate to /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ and delete each of the fonts in the aforementioned list from there.

    Take note, they won't have the .exe extension. If I'm reading the file right, they will be either .ttf or .ttc.

    I'm not sure if this is necessary or not, but I would do it afterwards, just to be safe. The script ran /usr/sbin/fonts-config when it was done, so running that as root may be wise, just in case.

    A quick look at the script and just a quick modification of:

    for i in *.tt[cf]; do rm /usr/share/fonts/truetype/$i; done
    # mv -f *.tt[cf] /usr/share/fonts/truetype

    would do the trick for you.

    You can modify the script using gedit / kedit / vi / vim or any other application you want.
