Installing Microsoft's fonts on Solus

Times New Roman, Arial, are one of the most popular fonts that are created by Microsoft.
Solus, by default, does not include the major Microsoft fonts
So in this tutorial i will show you how to install MS Fonts pack on Solus.  

  • First step is: to build the MS fonts package using the following command line:
sudo eopkg bi --ignore-safety https://raw.githubusercontent.com/getsolus/3rd-party/master/desktop/font/mscorefonts/pspec.xml
  • Second step is: to install the created eopkg package and then remove the local created eopkg package file using the following command line:
sudo eopkg it mscorefonts*.eopkg;sudo rm mscorefonts*.eopkg
Now you can use the Microsoft's fonts to create or edit your  documents.
That is all. I hope that you enjoy.

  1. Thank you very much! I've been using Solus for 4 months and really enjoy it. Yesterday I installed Solus with KDE and I really like it. Now I'm setting up my system

    1. You are welcome.
      Solus is a very good distro especially the KDE version but it still need more improvements.I used as my daily driver a year ago, now I am waiting for a new iso release to reinstall it as the current one is really outdated.

  2. It would be also great, if you (if it's possible) publish an article about possible gaming setting up for Solus as for instance CS GO runs at 35-40 fps max, while when booting from SSD with Windows the FPS rate is 60+

    1. The game performance experience on Linux is on most cases inferior to the windows one because games developer don't want to spend times on Linux versions.
