Hi, first off i just want to say the way playonlinux handles installations is awesome! i have been trying to install office 2010 and the fact playonlinux automatically downloads whats needed is fantastic.


i am haveing one issue tho, and i cant seem to find a solution looking online, when it comes to downloading the fonts it seems to get stuck on "tahoma32.exe". from what i can guess, this is because the download link no longer works. is there a way i can stop it from trying to download tahoma32.exe and just move onto the next font, (assuming tahoma32.exe is not mandatory for the running of office 2010) or does anyone know a working download link for it? and if so a way to update playonlinux to use that one?

i have also tried copying my fronts from a windows pc to the "/home/jjlyon/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/Office2010/drive_c/windows/Fonts/" including the tahoma font (excluding other fonts with the same name)

kind regards

Hi Josh,

Did you ever resolve this problem? I have just hit it also, whilst migrating my Windows 7 system to Mint.

Anyone have any clues?

See my post at bottom of the above for a possible workaround...
