Hey!
Whenever I try to install allfonts from Winetricks I get this error:
Downloading http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/ma ... e2_all.deb failed

It would appear that package does not exist at the specified location. I can't find any alternatives to retrieve it, either, so best bet is to wait for the developers to release a new version of the allfonts package.

Madbones, you've posted that you have Windows. Presuming Linux is on the same machine* (and the EULA covers it*) you can copy over your Windows fonts yourself :) (you can install them to Linux or just to Wine pretty easily)

Also, it's not that hard [ :? ] to visit http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/ma ... ffice.org/ and poke around the Debian packages available**, maybe this is the URL you want:
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/ma ... e4_all.deb


*there's nothing preventing you from doing this is this isn't the case too, but it may be questionable from a copyright/legal perspective :?
**actually I first checked under http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/l/ in case they had switched to LibreOffice like some other distros have eg. Ubuntu. It seems they haven't

Thanks. :/ Why didn't I think of that?
I do over complicate things all too often :lol: .
Thanks for the help!
