Install Microsoft Fonts in Linux

How to Install Microsoft Fonts in Linux Guide:

Tested on Distribution: Ubuntu Hardy Heron

How to install MS core fonts

You can install the MS core fonts by installing the msttcorefonts package. To do this, enable the “Universe” component of the repositories. This is done by default in Hardy. After you do that, use the following command from the command line:

$sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

After installing new fonts, you will have to log out and log in again to be able to see and use the new fonts. If you want to avoid this, you can regenerate the fonts cache by issuing the following command:

$sudo fc-cache -fv

And that is it. Microsoft Windows Font Styles are now part of your Linux Ubuntu System.
