Description

Here you'll find rpms to install Microsoft's Core fonts for the Web, the EU update and the ClearType fonts. The fonts are Andale, Arial, Calabri, CAmbria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia, Corbel, Comic, Courier, Georgia, Impact, Times Trebuchet, Verdana and Webdings.

The original cab files circa 2000 are on the sourceforge corefonts probject, while this project holds updates circa 2006, and the Cleartype fonts circa 2007. See

https://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/
and
https://sourceforge.net/projects/mscorefonts/

The rpms here do not contain the truetype fonts, instead the cabfiles are downloaded and unpacked at install time.

The fonts are then added or made known to the X core fonts and Xft systems.

Credit goes to the original author of corefonts, Noa Resare, and the numerous netizens who updated the spec file over the years.

See the specs and changelog for more history.

    It's almost perfect. The only problem is that Cambria is present in the PowerPoint viewer package as a .TTC file, instead of a .TTF file, so the scripts in the RPM package miss it and the regular style does not get installed. Manually extracting PowerPointViewer.exe and copying CAMBRIA.TTC to /usr/share/fonts/msttcore works, but the RPM package should be doing this. Other than that, it's perfect.
