    Hello,
    I try to install microsoft fonts as it is written here https://www.ostechnix.com/install-microsoft-windows-fonts-ubuntu-16-04/
    sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    Code (markup):
    and
     fc-cache -f -v
    Code (markup):
    and even restarted the OS
    I thought that is all.
    and I see this package installed : https://imgur.com/a/s65iG1M
    But I do not see any additive fonts like Times, Courier
    I found directory /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts, but it is empty.
    Did I miss some steps ?
    Thanks!
    SEMrush

    I'm certainly no tech guru but requirements are: cabextract, debconf(0.5), debfonf-2.0, update-notifier-common(0.119ubentu2), xfonts-utils.
    Try this install howto.....#sudo apt-get update.

    All packeage are installed , except “ update-notifier-common(0.119ubentu2)” is it some package, misspelling?

    Also can it be a way to download all fonts from some source and upload them into
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts
    ?

    I'm new at this having only just finished my course, but I'll try and help you. I believe that a required module would be: python module "six" installed.
    code:cache policy python-six
    and
    code:dpkg-l python-six
