Hello, I am new here and new to using Ubuntu. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this problem. I use microsoft office 2007 and one day the Times New Roman font went missing. I cannot create a document in Times New Roman anymore. When I open a document that was written in Times New Roman it does say the name in the font area however the font is not correct. It is some bold italicized font.
I have attached an image of the badly rendered font.
This started happening after upgrading 12.04 (I was on 10.10 before that). The chrome version is Version 22.0.1229.39 beta. Font for the text in multi-color is "CallunaBlack". If I change it to Arial or Times New Roman, it is displayed correctly. The problem may be limited to webfonts.
Most computers are able to read Arial and Helvetica fonts. In Thunderbird, you can set your outgoing emails to display Arial/Helvetica (as s single setting). My guess is so that Macs can read your email with a font similar to Arial.
What happens, however, if an Ubuntu (Linux) user receives that email, but doesn't have the ttf-MScorefonts installed?
I used a font manager on Mac OS X, for additional fonts in my graphic design projects without installing them to the fonts folder (I think that's how it works) - using Font Book and Font Explorer X Version 1.2.3 on OS X 10.6.
Most fonts work fine, but Interstate has a problem:
Interstate Regular is installed, but for some reason it's probably not seeing it; it's seeing all the Bold and Condense
Did you see Ivan's font topic: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=18249 ?After you installed the fonts, did you rebuild the font cache?BlackIvan wrote:If you want to install some new fonts, especially bitmap fonts from outside the repos put them under ~/.fonts or for system wide use under /usr/share/fonts.
