Microsoft Fonts on openSUSE 11.0

Ben: As you may have noticed currently there is no package in the openSUSE 11.0 update repo to install Microsoft fonts during your openSUSE 11.0 installation. As we have learned that sometimes you just need fonts like Times New Roman and many others that are provided from Microsoft.

So, are you here because you wanted to find out how to install the said fonts. So here’s what we’ll do.

First lets install cabextract:
sudo zypper in cabextract

Run the following commands:
chmod a+x
sudo sh

As you will see, you are just downloading the 10.3 script that did the installation and I have tested and verified that it works on 11.0.

google: microsoft fonts opensuse, ms fonts opensuse, microsoft font opensuse, windows fonts opensuse opensuse 11 fonts, opensuse 11.0 fonts

Thx a lot for this hint.

Helped me that much after searching the web for at least an hour...
