    Default Installing Microsoft TT fonts in BT2

    If you noticed, some Microsoft True Type fonts (such as Arial & Times New Roman) are not installed in Linux. If you're used to looking at webpages in Arial (or whatever) like I am, serif is a little different. Here is the procedure that worked for me:
    Downloads fonts in RPM package
    Code:
    rpm2tgz msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.rpm
    Converts RPM to TGZ
    Code:
    tgz2lzm msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.tgz msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.lzm
    Converts TGZ to LZM
    Code:
    lzm2dir msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.lzm /
    Installs to directory.

    Reboot! Your fonts are now installed. Firefox/Edit/Preferences/Content/Fonts & Colors to change the default.

    If there is an easier way to do it, post your method!
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    The error message is telling you everything you need to know! You're missing the install location (output directory)

    Instead of
    Code:
    bt ~ # lzm2dir msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.lzm
    Type
    Code:
    bt ~ # lzm2dir msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.lzm /
    That extra / is the location to install.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    wget failed for me too, but when I clicked the link directly it still worked in Firefox.
    Code:

    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    I soooo love you, I was searching all day today... I thought it was a Firefox issue as Konqoreur looked fine.

    I just read this as a last resort!

    Kisses!

    Thank you theprez98

    I know this was for BT2 but I tried this in BT3. Everything went smoothly, except when I rebooted and checked for the fonts in Firefox... they weren't there.

    Updated: For BT3... I added this command after theprez98 commands:
    cp /usr/share/fonts/msttcorefonts/*.ttf /usr/share/fonts/TTF/

    There must be another way but it's working in BT3 now.
