install font question [solved]

Post by mike acker » Mon Sep 18, 2017 4:21 pm

Q: how do i install the msttcorefont file containing Time New Roman .ttf files for LMDE/2 - and LibreOffice

i have them in /usr/share/fonts/truetype and have run the fc-cache -fv command

no help

Solution: SET PERMISSIONS then run fc-cache

group root has to have access and folders -- the guest level i think -- has to also have access


you are required to use Times New Roman in working in APA format. I have NO IDEA why I had to do this install myself.
