Install Microsoft fonts in Ubuntu 12.04

Microsoft fonts in Ubuntu 12.04

Many developers and programmers might be looking for Microsoft Windows fonts. It is a third part codec for Ubuntu. So sometimes installation will not succeed because third part packages will have some Hash Sum mismatch.

( Hash Sum mismatch :- Ubuntu validates all packages and software which are not in its repository using a Hash value. If this value is not authenticated we cannot install it using apt-get install command or Ubuntu Software center and need to install manually )

So I have provide all methods of installation.

1. Using terminal

Run below command as sudo

$ sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

2. Using Ubuntu Software Center

Enter ttf-mscorefonts-installer and accept EULA agreement

3. Manual Installation

Go to below website

msttcorefonts debian package

download latest deb package and install using Software Center or Archive Manager.

I have downloaded ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.4ubuntu3_all.deb

Install it via Ubuntu software Center and enjoy Microsoft Fonts in Ubuntu.
