    search http://sourceforge.net for Microsoft Core Fonts Linux.. you should find a tarball with those fonts in it..
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    If you have a Windows system, copy all .ttf files.

    First open nautilus(or your home icon).
    In it's location bar, type
    Code:
    fonts:
    and press enter.
    Drag and drop all fonts you need in this map.

    Isn't that illegal? But that is a convienient way to do it.

    IIRC, the only legal way to get the Microsoft Core Fonts for Linux is to download them from sourceforge. They are the only ones with a copy left (other than some distro mirrors, maybe.).
