If you are behind a proxy and do not already have the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package installed, then please follow these steps so that the mscorefonts package will install correctly.

  1. Open your favorite text editor, for instance use Applications -> Accessories -> gedit Text Editor
  2. Copy the following 2 lines and paste them in your empty document:
    http_proxy = http://proxy.yourdomain.com:3128
    use_proxy = on
  3. Correct the proxy to match your information, including using the correct port number.
  4. Use File -> Save As
  5. Be sure you are in your home folder and give the file a name of .wgetrc
  6. Now you can continue with installing FieldWorks and this package will be automatically installed
  7. Or you can choose to install the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package and it should install successfully
