Thread: MS Fonts not loaded in Gnome

  1. #1

    Default MS Fonts not loaded in Gnome

    opensuse v11.2
    linux 2.6.31.12-0.1-desktop x86_64

    The freebie MS fonts are not loaded in v11.2 with the Gnome desktop. (This is a new installation, not an upgrade from an earlier version.)

    Is this normal?

    Are you sure?
    How did you install them?

    I didn't install them. In the past the fonts were loaded automagically during one of the update phases, or maybe during OS installation.

    There was something about a <fetchmsttfont.sh> script somewhere, but I cannot find it on the computer.

    Hi
    It's called pullin-msttf-fonts. It can be run manually as;
    Code:
    sudo sh /var/adm/update-scripts/fetchmsttfonts-11.2-6.6.12-fetchmsttfonts.sh.txt
