9 TrueType Fonts

Open Firefox and go to ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/suser-jengelh/AnyDistro/noarch/MicrosoftFonts-1-jen14.noarch.rpm. A download dialogue will open - select Open with Install Software (default):

Type in the root password:

The Package Manager opens and installs the TrueType fonts package:

Afterwards, you can open a word processor like OpenOffice, and you should find a lot of new fonts there (like Arial, Verdana, etc.).

Skype is now being installed together with its dependencies:

 

11 Google Earth

To install Google Earth, open a terminal (Gnome Terminal)...

...and become root:

su

Then run

cd /home/falko/Desktop
wget http://dl.google.com/earth/client/GE4/release_4_2/GoogleEarthLinux.bin
sh GoogleEarthLinux.bin

This will download Google Earth and start the installation. A Google Earth Setup window opens. Accept all default settings and click on Begin Install:

After the installation, you can click on Quit or on Start, if you want to start Google Earth now:

Afterwards, we delete the Google Earth installer:

rm -f GoogleEarthLinux.bin

I followed the install exactly except I didn't use the live version, but downloaded the latest .iso and burned it to DVD.

Microsoft fonts wouldn't install - said there was a conflict with Agfa fonts and Google Earth installed, but if you try to run it, it shows the flash screeen and then changes runlevel and comes nack with the runlevel 5 login screen again.

 I can't see a way to un-install it either. Maybe it's missing the Microsoft fonts?
