Installer for Microsoft TrueType core fonts
  20 reviews

This package allows for easy installation of the Microsoft True Type Core Fonts for the Web including:

Andale Mono
Arial Black
Arial (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Comic Sans MS (Bold)
Courier New (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Georgia (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Times New Roman (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Trebuchet (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Verdana (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
You will need an Internet connection to download these fonts if you don't already have them.

NOTE: the package fonts-liberation contains free variants of the Times, Arial and Courier fonts. It's better to use those instead unless you specifically need one of the other fonts from this package.

After chasing around on forums looking for why my Mint 20.x didn't appear to offer the fonts that the Software Manager wrongly showed as installed ..... I found that in the folder where they should be there was a text file that informed me of a failure to authenticate during the installation process! So I followed the instruction under that and used this command in Terminal ---- sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer. Then it installed them and all is now fine!

On my 19.2 cinnamon, the installation didn't work, because the fonts could not be downloaded.

All fonts installed as expected. I was only after Arial for compatability with all my Word docs I had created. All good!

I'm running Linux Mint MATE 19.2. This installed without a hitch. The preinstalled fonts had satisfactory alternatives for Arial e.g. Liberation Sans and Noto Sans, but it's nice to have Verdana back.

Downloaded mainly for the Comic Sans font, into a newly created Mint 19.1 set up .... following initial compliation, the software now works perfectly. Thanks to all concerned, for their efforts.

In reply to the other comment about not woring on Linux Miint 19. I am using Mint 19 Cinnamon and it installed (with suggested dependancies) with no problems. I have used th Arial font a few times in text programmes, not yet in others eg graphics or DTP etc yet. No problems so far, all appears to be good for me.

Not working on my computer: LinuxMint 18 (Sarah) XFCE - even after having type "sudo fc-cache -f -v" (thanks by the way!) What worked instead: using the more recent corresponding deb file on this community forum page:
