How to Install Windows Fonts in Ubuntu?

Although we use linux and use OpenOffice or LibreOffice, some times we need windows fonts to some important things. Like Times New Roman, Arial, and the other windows fonts.

To do it, just open terminal then type,

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

Then restart your Office (OpenOffice or LibreOffice) / close and run again your office. Then you will see new fonts in your office.

Other way you can install windows fonts manually,

Copy windows fonts from windows (usually in C:\Windows\fonts directory)
Then paste to your Ubuntu (usually in File System – usr – share – fonts)

If you can not paste it, you can open your file manager (nautilus) from terminal

sudo nautilus
