Download this script and run it as root in a console. It will download core fonts and install them.
In case of broken link, here is the content of the script :
pisi it cabextract mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/mscorefonts mkdir -p msfonts cd msfonts for i in andale arial arialb comic courie georgi impact times trebuc verdan webdin wd97vwr; do wget -c http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/corefonts/the%20fonts/final/"$i"32.exe && cabextract "$i"32.exe; done mv *.TTF *.ttf /usr/share/fonts/mscorefonts fc-cache -v cd .. rm -rf msfonts
Save it with kwrite in your home repository as corefonts.sh and run it in konsole with the following command line :
sudo sh ./corefonts.sh
NB : NEW ADDRESS : http://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/ THE SCRIPT CANNOT DOWNLOAD THE FONTS ANYMORE WITH THIS NEW ADDRESS.
Diogo Lima : Modified the directory of the location of the fonts, since the link doesn't work anymore, sourceforge changed its website structure. And the list is missing another msfont wd97vwr
