[Bug 1772438] Re: Selecting Restricted Extras from Budgie welcome screen -> Updates & Extras fails to install "ttf-mscorefonts-installer" package


I think this bug report was a mistake.  I realize now that the ubuntu-
restricted-extras includes ttf-mscorefonts-installer by default.  I
believe that the syntax I thought was a bug:

apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras ttf-mscorefonts-installer-

Actually means "install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package but don't
install the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package which would ordinarily be

So I think it's safe to close this bug, although I'm not sure why the
Ubuntu Budgie team would specifically include the MS core TTF fonts?

  Selecting Restricted Extras from Budgie welcome screen -> Updates &
  Extras fails to install "ttf-mscorefonts-installer" package

Bug description:
  Version: Ubuntu Budgie 18.04

  After a fresh install, I noticed that when opting to install
  "Restricted Extras" from the "Getting Started -> Updates and Extras"
  tool that the Budgie Welcome application attempts to install two

  1. ubuntu-restricted-extras
  2. ttf-mscorefonts-installer

  I determined this by looking at the /var/log/apt/history.log

  Start-Date: 2018-05-17  22:21:07
  Commandline: apt install --allow-unauthenticated -y ubuntu-restricted-extras ttf-mscorefonts-installer-
  Requested-By: robert (1000)
  Install: unrar:amd64 (1:5.5.8-1, automatic), libavcodec-extra:amd64 (7:3.4.2-2, automatic), libvo-amrwbenc0:amd64 (0.1.3-1, automatic), libavcodec-extra57:amd64 (7:3.4.2-2, automatic), ubuntu-restricted-extras:amd64 (66)
  Remove: libavcodec57:amd64 (7:3.4.2-2)
  End-Date: 2018-05-17  22:21:10

  I believe there might be a typo for the second package.  It's recorded
  as "ttf-mscorefonts-installer-" in the history.log, when the actual
  package name is "ttf-mscorefonts-installer" (without the hyphen at the
  end).  The end result after selecting this option from the Budgie
  Welcome application is that the MS ttf fonts are NOT installed.

  To fix this, I manually install the MS ttf fonts by doing this:

  sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

  And the MS ttf installed fine without any issues.
