    Default msttf font install error

    Hi,

    I've been using Ubuntu for the last 6 months and have recently started to try out openSUSE 11.1. I have a problem installing the MS fonts which I was hoping someone would be able to help me with. When I select the fetchmsttfonts for installation, I get the following output:

    Downloading fetchmsttfonts (download size 6.00 kB)
    Installing fetchmsttfonts-11.1-5.6.1.noarch.rpm (installed size 4.00 kB)
    Starting script fetchmsttfonts-11.1-5.6.1.noarch

    I think you need the package cabextract.
    It should be a dependency for fetchmsttfonts.

    From the rpm description:

    Cabinet (.CAB) files are a form of archive, which Microsoft uses to
    distribute their software and things like Windows Font Packs. cabextract can
    be used to unpack these files.

    Hi
    It's a problem with the server list, which I have seen on the mailing
    lists. If the server doesn't have the files the script bombs out.
    You need to modify the script to delete the first two servers.
    I just test the one I have and it's working and have posted it at the
    following link;
    http://www.nopaste.com/p/alZ9xl8xG
    Just copy that and save as fetchmsttfonts then;
    Code:
    chmod 700 fetchmsttfonts
    sudo ./ fetchmsttfonts

    malcolmlewis, thanks very much your updated script worked a treat.
    Shouldn't someone update the one in the YaST Software Update to help future users?

    Hi
    Manually download this one;
    http://software.opensuse.org/search?...fetchmsttfonts
    and install via;
    Code:
    sudo rpm -Uhv fetchmsttfonts-11.1-6.9.noarch.rpm
    sudo sh /var/adm/update-scripts/fetchmsttfonts-11.1-6.9
    There where changes in the file directory structure hence the errors.
