Installing Microsoft Corefonts on CentOS

This is a thing I always have to google when I need to install Microsoft’s fonts in my CentOS installs so I thought I’d post a short dirty note here to remind me how to do it.

First of all we need some tools to build ourselves in the RPM for msttcorefonts, so fire up your terminal and

[root@localhost ~]$ yum install cabextract rpm-build of term paper research

When finished run the following as root

[root@localhost build]$ wget
[root@localhost build]$ rpmbuild -ba msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
[root@localhost build]$ rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm
[root@localhost build]$ /sbin/service xfs reload

That’s it. You should now have Microsoft’s standard fonts installed and ready to go.
