10 TrueType Fonts

To install Windows TrueType fonts, open a terminal and become root again:

su

Then run:

cd /tmp/
wget http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
yum -y install rpm-build cabextract ttmkfdir

rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
rpm -ivh /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm --nodeps

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:

Location for "11 libdvdcss2" should be changed to http://dl.atrpms.net/f11-i386/atrpms/stable/libdvdcss2-1.2.10-5.fc11.i586.rpm

 

And thank you for great manuals
