Thread: How do you install the msttfonts

    Default How do you install the msttfonts

    I'm running version 11.3 Gnome. I've read everything I can get my hands on to get these MS fonts installed. I have read and checked and found the fetchmsttfonts but don't know how to run it. Anyone know how to get this font installed? Thanks

    When you install the fetchmsttfonts package it will run a command to fetch the fonts.

    Where are the fonts installed at? I've gone into fonts but don't see anything that says msttfonts. What name does it go by then. Thanks

    This is the contents of the fetchmsttfonts package on 11.2:

    Code:
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/andalemo.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/arial.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/arialbd.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/arialbi.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ariali.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ariblk.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/comic.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/comicbd.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/cour.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/courbd.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/courbi.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/couri.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/georgia.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/georgiab.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/georgiai.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/georgiaz.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/times.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/timesbd.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/timesbi.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/timesi.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/trebuc.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/trebucbd.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/trebucbi.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/trebucit.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/verdana.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/verdanab.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/verdanai.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/verdanaz.ttf
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/webdings.ttf
    /var/adm/update-messages/fetchmsttfonts-11.2-6.6.12-1
    /var/adm/update-scripts/fetchmsttfonts-11.2-6.6.12-fetchmsttfonts.sh.txt
    So it looks like they go into /usr/share/fonts/truetype.

    Thanks for the info. Now I have to figure out how to move them to the fonts folder that contains the fonts that suse 11.3 Gnome uses. Any ideas? Thanks

    What makes you think GNOME isn't using the fonts?
