Sometimes when we build websites or web applications, we have to make sure it is compatible with other Internet Browsers and operating system.

Here's a quick guide to help you install the Microsoft fonts or TTF in Ubuntu.

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

This will install fonts like Arial, Times New Roman and other Microsoft fonts. This will not install Tahoma or verdana font. To install them, you need to run this command:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
