Fresh install to an external drive of Ubuntu MATE last night and it is excellent. But I have one issue. Microsoft fonts will not install. I tried installing them from the ‘extras’ package and that did not work, neither would directly installing them via the terminal work. Here is the pop up window:
Failure to download extra data files
The following packages requested additional data downloads after package installation, but the data could not be downloaded or could not be processed.
The download will be attempted again later, or you can try the download again now. Running this command requires an active Internet connection.
I need those fonts and appreciate any help.
