[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?

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.
