10 TrueType Fonts

Open Firefox, go to ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/seerofsouls.com/mandriva/2007/i586/main/, and select the msttcorefonts rpm file (ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/seerofsouls.com/mandriva/2007/i586/main/msttcorefonts-bootstrap-0.1-4brs.noarch.rpm). Select Open with Software Installer (default) in the Firefox download dialogue:

In the window RPM Installation, select Install:

Type in your root password:

If the package has some dependencies, install them as well:

The additional packages are now being downloaded and installed:

It is possible that the package has an unknown signature. Continue by clicking on Yes:

The RPM Installation window closes automatically after the installation has finished.

To check if the TrueType fonts have been installed correctly, open a word processor like OpenOffice. You should now find your new Windows fonts there:

 

11 Adobe Reader

To download Adobe Reader, go to http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2_allversions.html and select the following:

Operating system: Linux - x86 (.rpm)
Your language

Then click on Continue:

Select Adobe Reader 9.3.3 (or whatever the latest version is) and click on the Download now button:

For some reason I got an error when I selected Open with Software Installer (default) in the Firefox download dialogue. To circumvent the problem, I save the file on the hard drive (e.g. in the Downloads directory -> /home/falko/Downloads)...

... and open a terminal (Applications > Tools > Terminal):

Type

su

to become root and go to the directory where you've saved the Adobe rpm (e.g. /home/falko/Downloads):

cd /home/falko/Downloads/

You can type

ls -l

to find out the exact name of the Adobe rpm. Afterwards, you can install it like this:

rpm -ivh AdbeRdr9.3.3-1_i486linux_enu.rpm

After the installation we can delete the Adobe rpm:

rm -f AdbeRdr9.3.3-1_i486linux_enu.rpm
