Install MS Truetype fonts and Chromium Browser on Fedora


1. Install MS Truetype fonts
"su" to root then install xfs and chkfontpath, the second command has only one line:
# yum install xfs
# rpm -ivh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/chkfontpath-1.10.1-2.fc11.i586.rpm
Now you should choose one from two ways (only a or b) below:

a) The simplest way to install msttcorefonts is:
- Download msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm which I built and uploaded here:
http://www.mediafire.com/?mdyqigg3r7z
(md5sum: d1ddfd4b24f708b34b22677e794a7edd msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm)
then execute these commands, :
# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm
# /etc/init.d/xfs restart
Done

b) The more complex way is building from source code
Found the steps here: http://www.fedorafaq.org/#installfonts


2. Install Chromium Browser (Google Chrome)
"su" to root then
# nano /etc/yum.repos.d/chromium.repo
paste this content and save (Ctrl-X)
[chromium]
name=Chromium Test Packages
baseurl=http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F$releasever/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
then
# yum install chromium
Done
