Installation issues / Re: pluto-orbiter failed to install?
« on: February 02, 2010, 04:10:54 pm »
In my case the msttcorefonts package doesn't work.
The sourceforge mirrors where the font files are supposed to be isn't working.

I found a workaround to fix the package using the japanese sourceforge mirror, by editing:

replacing it with this code:
Code: [Select]

cd /tmp/mscorefonts

#Clean up
cd ~
rm -r /tmp/mscorefonts

after editing the file, I re-install the msttcorefonts package manually with
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts before running the LinuxMCE install scripts.

But it appears that when installing the pluto-orbiter package the install script re-downloads the broken msttcorefonts package again, overwriting my msttcorefonts.postinst workaround.

..thus causing said error again.

I believe that by fixing the msttcorefonts package the issue can be resolved.

However I don't know how to do it.
