Installing Microsoft fonts

** Note: Fedora 8 uses deja-vu and liberation fonts. Give them a try!

If you are using KDE you can copy the fonts from a Windows installation and then open Control Center -> System Administration -> Font Installer and drag ‘n’ drop them in there. You must restart your open appilications in order to see the new fonts.

Alternatively you can type:

$ wget
$ sudo yum install chkfontpath
$ sudo rpm -hiv msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm
$ sudo /etc/init.d/xfs reload
