I am having problems with word documents... if soured from MS word
fonts are typically Times Roman or Arial.

Once opened with Openoffice on Pardus a font substitution by default.

MS users / authors no longer see the original format of their document.

Is there any way of installing the MS fonts into Openoffice?

Thanks, Andrew

This trick no longer works in Pardus 2008.

Does anyone know how to install microsoft corefonts in Pardus 2008?

Solved  Cheesy

The problem had to do with the somewhat changed security levels in Pardus 2008 (IMO better now, since users and superusers are kept apart more thoroughly which benefits system security).

During installation I did not give myself (as the regular user) superusers privileges).
That's why sudo did nothing and su was not even possible in the Konsole (denied)

When I restored this via Tasma-System-Users Managment and I checked the checkbox " give systemadministrator privileges to this user" it all worked fine again, and within 30 seconds the corefonts.sh script had installed Arial, Times etcetc in my new Pardus 2008 system.

The link http://cekirdek.pardus.org.tr/~ismail/hacks/corefonts.sh seems to be broken. I am getting a 404 Not Found error. Can anybody post the correct link?

Here is the content of the corefonts.sh script :

Code:
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;
do wget -c http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/"$i"32.exe && cabextract "$i"32.exe;
done
mv *.TTF *.ttf /usr/share/fonts/mscorefonts
fc-cache -v
cd ..
rm -rf msfonts

Paste it in kwrite, save it as corefonts.sh and right-click on its icon to change the rights in order to make it executable.

ashwin@TWINTURBOV8 ~ $ sudo sh corefonts.sh

It keeps on doing that. Is it because of the fact that I am behind a proxy server??

The links are OK, so if you can't access http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/ then it may have something to do with your proxy configuration indeed.

The proxy settings are computer-wide : if it works on firefox it will work everywhere else.

What happens when you click on the link to the fonts files ?

I think proxy settings are not system-wide, but  user-wide Wink They can be configured in Tasma.

ashwinhgtx : you should ask who is responsible for putting a proxy on your network to allow you to access to this webpage.

Phix, unfortunately my college is responsible for the proxy systems. I don't have access to the company behind it. So no luck there....
When I click on http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/ I get an error message...
Network Access Message: The page cannot be displayed

I remember editing my bashrc file when I was using Linux Mint KDE. I had to do it to get my package manager working through Konsole. That was because Adept or whatever updating software came with it didn't recognise the proxy settings from Konqueror and it didn't have a proxy configuration option in its preferences section. After that I was able to install and update packages through Konsole. Should I attempt the same with Pardus? I don't want to screw up my install by doing something stupid...
PiSi works from Konsole for me. I think that's because I have set the proxy correctly through the PiSi graphical interface.
Any suggestions?

As a workaround, you can download or ask someone to download for you the fonts from another internet access.
And type these command lines yourself :
Code:
mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/mscorefonts
mkdir -p msfonts
put the fonts in msfonts directory, then do :
Code:
cd msfonts
for i in andale arial arialb comic courie georgi impact times trebuc verdan webdin; do cabextract "$i"32.exe;done
mv *.TTF *.ttf /usr/share/fonts/mscorefonts
fc-cache -v
cd ..
rm -rf msfonts
