Once all the fonts have been copied, change program settings and make default fonts as they were set in Windows. Am I correct? Or is there an easier way of doing this? Like, maybe installing a particular theme?

1. The Mint Main Edition uses the Gnome desktop. If you want to try Fluxbox (which is really a window manager, not a desktop manager), you can download the Mint 8 Fluxbox Community Edition from the Mint main page or you can go to Package manager and install fluxbox (enter "fluxbox" in search) on your gnome desktop and choose which to run at log in.

Install this and, if you want even more, install "texlive-fonts-extras 2007. You may have to install "xttcidfont.conf" also, I"m not sure it will install as a dependency for texlive-fonts.
If you still don't get the font you want. install "open-font-design-toolkit" and design your own font based on any open licensed font.
