How to resolve font issue in Safari on your Ubuntu

| | 1 min read

Wine helps you to run windows application in Ubuntu. Sometimes even though wine exists on your system, fonts which work perfectly fine on other browsers might be displayed wrongly in Safari. To fix this common font issue found in Safari working under wine on Ubuntu, you need to update the Wine repository on your system.

To update the Wine repository on your machine from the original wine ppa (Personal Package Archives), which can serve as a fix, just open a terminal and paste the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

Now test this by opening those same problem pages in Safari.
