    This message is quite clear. You need to accept the licence. Press Tab, then Enter.

  • The meaning seems clear to me? Oh and what to -do- there is hit the "tab" to highlight OK to agree.

    @terdon The question is clear. It may be a duplicate, but not unclear at all.

  • @Pilot6 OK, I have no idea what this is referring to. The OP didn't say what they were doing, when this happened, where they saw it or anything. If you know what it is, I am happy to reopen, but please edit the question yourself and include the command that can generate this message.

The message in the popup window is asking if you want to accept the Microsoft End User License Agreement (EULA) when installing proprietary Microsoft TrueType core fonts.

Use the Tab and Enter keys to accept the EULA in the Microsoft TrueType core fonts window that pops up. This pop-up window sometimes gets covered up by other open windows when installing Microsoft TrueType core fonts from the Software application, making it difficult to accept the EULA in order to continue the installation of Microsoft TrueType core fonts.


This message appears when you install Microsoft fonts (ttf-mscorefonts-installer), or ubuntu-restricted-extras that installs these fonts too.

The message asks to accept End User Licence (EULA).

You can do it by pressing Tab then Enter
