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.
While trying to install a new font (Calibri) i managed to create a problem for myself.
The font pack i had for this had 4 files and i used "ROM Toolbox" to attempt the install. What i did not know was that by default it overwrites old fonts with the new ones. It overwrote the font files "arial.ttf, Clockopia.ttf, DroidSans.ttf and Roboto-Regular.ttf" under /system/fonts.
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?
