Re: ttf-core fonts not installing into LibreOffice

Mint 19.1 Xfce

I installed the package ttf-ms-corefonts-installer through Synaptic.
This is supposed to add the extra fonts in LibreOffice. However, they are not showing up in Libre Office when I try and use it.
I've rebooted and all that.

Any ideas?
Thanks
Inside Writer:
go to Tools/Options/Libreoffice Writer/Fonts
you don't have the option to change the drop-down box to MS fonts? That should let you set your default fonts to MS fonts of you installed them. If they aren't showing up at all, there is a problem with the package installing. If nothing else, you can try to download the package directly from Debian, Sid perhaps. But Mint needs to fix the package if its broken in their repo.

LLS:

When installing ttf-mscorefontsinstaller:

If I recall correctly (I've slept since performing said function LOL), near the end of the installation your required to accept the responsibility of installing these fonts, I believe it's a check box. Watch the installation and you'll notice that it stops and waits for you to accept.

If you don't check the accept box, they will not install. Plus, I believe the ttf install is system global and not just installed in LibreOffice.

Hope this helps...
