Hello, I’m an intermediate linux user here but, I’m extremly new to opensuse and any other products from novell.
I have most of what I want set up with opensuse 11.0rc1, what’s left is microsofts corefonts, I installed one package I found somewhere but it made all the fonts in GNOME look more like microsoft’s font.
How do I install microsofts corefonts like on any other distro like ubuntu etc.?
That should show up as a patch in the online updater…at least it did in 10.3. I have no idea if that is currently available in 11.0, I suspect not but I’ll let someone running the RC1 answer. I would expect to see it in the 11.0 final though.
The updates repository is not quite up and running yet as we are still at the release candidate stage (i.e. not a completely finished product). Things like nvidia drivers and the microsoft true type fonts are not quite yet available. I’m afraid you’ll have to either check back after release or install them manually
Aren’t truetype fonts an ms only technology? If they are, does that mean there isn’t a truetype directory in SuSE? If there isn’t, and we have to create one, how will applications know where to look to use these fonts?
