Linux: install Windows fonts

June 24, 2016 Leave a comment

Problem
I wanted to create a meme image manually in Gimp but I didn’t have the required font (Impact). What now?

Solution
The remedy is here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Microsoft_fonts. I have a dual boot machine with Windows and Linux, so I decided to put a link on Windows’ Fonts folder (I didn’t want to copy 550+ MB fonts).

# ln -s /mnt/Windows/Fonts /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts
# fc-cache

The prompt “#” means a root shell. Restart Gimp and the Windows fonts will be available.
