Re: Courier Font package

I hope to install Courier font in my lenny but I did not find the proper package.
Whant package should I install ?

Thanks in advance.

You should learn how to use the Debian tools.

1. Install the apt-cache package.
2. Read the apt-cache man file  ie  man apt-cache.

There is no package in Debian called 'apt-cache'. There is a program called 'apt-cache', provided in the package called 'apt'. The 'apt' package is categorized as Essential, so anyone who installs Debian is pretty much guaranteed to have it installed.

On my system, I seem to have Courier fonts... but I cannot say which font package I have installed which provides those fonts:

$ fc-list |grep -i courier
Courier New:style=Regular,Normal,obyčejné,Standard,Κανονικά,Normaali,
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Bold Italic
Courier New:style=Bold Italic,Negreta cursiva,tučné kurzíva,fed kursiv,Fett Kursiv,Έντονα Πλάγια,Negrita Cursiva,Lihavoitu Kursivoi,Gras Italique,Félkövér dőlt,Grassetto Corsivo,Vet Cursief,Halvfet Kursiv,Pogrubiona kursywa,Negrito Itálico,Полужирный Курсив,Tučná kurzíva,Fet Kursiv,Kalın İtalik,Krepko poševno,Lodi etzana
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Italic
Courier New:style=Italic,Cursiva,kurzíva,kursiv,Πλάγια,Kursivoitu,Italique,
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Regular
Courier New:style=Bold,Negreta,tučné,fed,Fett,Έντονα,Negrita,Lihavoitu,Gras,
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Bold

No doubt others on this list who are more familiar with fonts (and their respective packages) can name the packages. All that I can say is that Courier fonts are available (somehow) via the Debian repositories. Possibly I have them because of the package called 'ttf-mscorefonts- installer'.
