Fonts like Tahoma, Verdana, ... are missing on a standard Ubuntu installation. I was looking to install the Microsoft TrueCrypt fonts so I could open Word documents (created in Microsoft Office) correctly in OpenOffice. Also, I had the issue some of my webpages were not looking ok in Firefox (Linux) - fonts were missing, so pages could look totally different.
- Install package msttcorefonts
- To be able to reload the fonts, without rebooting the machine, execute the command:
$ sudo aptitude install msttcorefonts
$ sudo fc-cache -fv
