How do I install Windows fonts in my Linux distribution

If you recently switched from Windows to Linux, you will want to install Windows fonts in your Linux distribution. These fonts will then be available in programs such as Libre Office and other software in your Linux distribution.

The Windows fonts are found in the ttf-mscorefonts package and can be installed using the following command.

sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Once installed the fonts can be found in the following directory

The following fonts will be installed
Andale Mono
Arial Black
Arial (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Comic Sans MS (Bold)
Courier New (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Georgia (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Times New Roman (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Trebuchet (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Verdana (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)

This is what the fonts look like in Libre Office Writer. If you created a document in Microsoft Office using the Arial font, and then open it in Libre Office, the document will be formatted correctly.
