Fonts - Web Sites look a bit dodgy [Solved]


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to automatically install windows system fonts on Linux so that most web site's fonts display correctly? Or is there somewhere I can download the main fonts for the web for Linux?

Thanks :)

Check this link:




I used this when I installed my Windows fonts, I just copied them over into the necessary directory, and checked that the /etc/X11R6/fs/config file knew where to find them.


If you check this file first, you'll see where the existing TTF fonts are, and then just copy the Windows fonts into here.


Personally, I don't use the Windows fonts, as it looked even odder than it does with the standard Linux fonts. But see how you get on, you might like it :P
