Broken Tahoma font in Ubuntu 9.10

The Tahoma font included with Ubuntu 9.10 in the ttf-tahoma-replacement package does not handle bold and broke a lot of web pages, so either remove it or replace it with the proper windows ttf.

You can find instructions here:

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
sudo apt-get remove ttf-tahoma-replacement
cd ~
wget http://www.stchman.com/tools/MS_fonts/tahoma.zip
sudo unzip -d /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts tahoma.zip
sudo fc-cache -f -v
rm -f ~/tahoma.zip
