    Open Synaptic under System-Administration and do a search for ttf
    Select ttf-mscorefonts-installer, ttf- freefont, ttf-opensymbol, ttf-liberation,
    ttf-dejavu-extra, libfreetype6

    If they are marked as already installed just mark them for reinstallation.
    You may have to reboot after you install them.

    RE: 'How to reinstall true-type fonts back again ?'

    First see what do you have in the repository list.
    Navigate to Add/Remove Software and in the search box write:
    msttcorefonts
    mscorefonts
    or if you remember the exact name of the package on your system.

    If you don't have the package in the repo lists, Google search:
    msttcorefonts .rpm

    I would recommend you the package
    msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.rmp
    but you may find something better.

    Download the RPM package, right click with the mouse on it and install it with the Package Manager that you have on your system - RPM, APT, YUM or whatever you have there.
    If the Package Manager 'starts complaining' that it is missing this and that (dependency), download all the dependencies in one director and compile them 'all in one'.

    Regards
