Introduce MS Fonts in Dual boot with Linux and Windows

In the event that you have double boot framework with Linux and Windows working framework, you can without much of a stretch introduce the MS fonts from Windows C drive. You should simply mount the Windows segment (C:/Windows).

I accept you have mounted the C:\Windows parcel at/Windowsdrive catalog in linux.

Presently, interface the fonts area to your Linux framework’s fonts organizer as demonstrated as follows.

ln - s/Windowsdrive/Windows/Fonts/usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts

Subsequent to connecting the fonts organizer, recover the fontconfig reserve utilizing order:

fc-store

On the other hand, duplicate all Windows fonts to /usr/share/fonts index and introduce the fonts utilizing the accompanying directions:

mkdir/usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts

cp/Windowsdrive/Windows/Fonts/*/usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts

chmod 755/usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts/*

At last, recover the fontconfig store utilizing order:

[cc]fc-cache/cc]

Test Windows font

Open LibreOffice or GIMP in the wake of introducing MS Fonts. Presently, you will see there the Microsoft coretype fonts.

libre office with windows fonts

That is it. Expectation this guide valuable. Once more, I caution you use of MS fonts in other working framework is restricted. If it’s not too much trouble read the Microsoft License understanding before introducing the MS fonts.
