If user believes they have some need or want for M$ fonts.
- Relevant informations (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):
Edited 2020-06-10 to add required packages: This seems to work. I’ve done in Lx 4.1. First be sure curl, cabextract, and fontconfig are installed.
$ sudo dnf install curl cabextract fontconfig
They also list xorg-x11-font-utils as a requires but OM does not have that so I installed this with ‘rpm -ihv --nodeps’.
$ sudo rpm -ihv --nodeps https://sourceforge.net/projects/mscorefonts2/files/rpms/msttcore-fonts-installer-2.6-1.noarch.rpm/download
Post-edit: Please do remember this is 3rd party software not OM software. Anytime a user installs 3rd party software this becomes the users responsibility. As such OM is not responsible for any consequences of installing this or any 3rd party software. Does not mean we won’t help with issues if we can just that it is not our code so we are limited as to what we can do.
