It doesn't work in Cinammon 19.2
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.
It doesn't work on Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.2
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.
Not working on my minty xfce. Found an old version which does the job while surfing the forums : http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/m/msttcorefonts/ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.6_all.deb
Tahoma is missing from this pack. Please add it.
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.
Terimakasih. Sangat membantu.
WTF!!! Tell for which distribution is valid this script!!! Sure it's not for Linux Mint 19! :( Don't tray for LM 19!
Must have, for web browsing as well as office application usage
Had to run apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer to accept license
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: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=229085
after the instalation: $sudo fc-cache -f -v
Absolutely necesairy for all office suites!
