Ubuntu – Installing Times New Roman font


How can I install the Times New Roman font? This video illustrates what I want to do, but I do not have the same options – I'm running Ubuntu 12.10.

I have also tried running the following from the terminal:

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

This is the message I receive:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
ttf-mscorefonts-installer is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.

Any suggestions?

Your best bet may be the --reinstall option.

Force a reinstallation with:

sudo apt-get --reinstall install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

which will force the preinst and postinst scipts that actually install the fonts to be re-run.
