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.
Then you will have to accept the EULA license terms. Press tab key to select ‘Yes’ and hit enter key.
Be patient as the tool has to download several exe files. After sometime you should see ‘All done, no errors. All fonts downloaded and installed’ and should end with the command prompt.
