Installing Arial font into LibreOffice Writer


The default LibreOffice Writer does not have Microsoft Arial font install as this is a proprietary software but it can be freely obtained. There is a msfontcore installer at Ubuntu Software Center but somehow it was not compatible with my Ubuntu Version and could not be installed. Mikhail gave me a zip copy of the Microsoft fonts and I extracted it into my computer. As Arial Regular font type is needed by wifey for her daily work, I selected that file, double-click the icon and clicked the install button on the upper right hand corner. The Arial font now appears in LibreOffice Writer
