Microsoft Fonts are free to download and install. Currently, the best way of installing them is by using apt-get command line. Let’s get started. I have tested this method on elementary OS Freya.

Launch Terminal, enter the following command line and hit enter.

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Enter the root password. Then you will have to type ‘Y’ and hit enter.

You will see Microsoft EULA. Press tab key to highlight ‘OK’ and hit enter.
