MSCoreFonts and proxy
If you are behind a proxy and do not already have the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package or the flashplugin-installer package installed, then please follow these steps so that these packages will install correctly.
- First be sure that you have set the proxy correctly system-wide.
- Open a terminal and type:
sudo http_proxy=$http_proxy apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
- Answer any questions. Once that has finished installing, do the same thing for the Flash plugin if you want to use the FieldWorks training movies.
- So in the terminal type:
sudo http_proxy=$http_proxy apt-get install flashplugin-installer
- Again answer any questions and wait for that to complete. Now install FieldWorks as you normally would.
