I was reinstalling Arch Linux just the other day and I noticed that, while my Desktop looked natural enough, my web browser fonts did not. I did some quick reading and found some of the fonts that seem to clear up the issue. If your fonts look a bit fuzzy, you’ll likely want to keep reading.
Arch Linux Fonts
To get a better all-around font experience, including the desktop and the web, I installed the following packages:
To install all of these, simply run:
sudo pacman -S ttf-droid ttf-liberation ttf-dejavu ttf-ms-fonts
You may need to restart your browser, or even logout and log back in, but you should notice a change once these fonts are installed.
wow… thx… i was looking into this i had just reinstalled everything and it looked crappy.
Thanks mate, it greatly imploved my experience
Do you search and want to install Microsoft Windows 8.1 TrueType fonts in your Linux? Download it as
ZIP ( https://www.dropbox.com/s/33no2hjkek950y8/MS_Windows81-TTF-FONTS.zip ), DEB ( https://www.dropbox.com/s/glk1qp6a344hjcb/ms_windows81-ttf-fonts-1-1_all.deb ) or RPM ( https://www.dropbox.com/s/jrs756euwkgno8m/ms_windows81-ttf-fonts-1-0.noarch.rpm ) package. Becides, almost all TTC fonts converted with fontforge to TTF format
Yo, ttf-ms-fonts is not in the official repos and thus cannot be installed via pacman.
You should change/add that accordingly.
