  • Doesn't work how? Did you make sure you had the contrib repo enabled? – Zoredache Jul 27 '16 at 3:08
  • Yes, i added this contrib in sources.list :deb http.us.debian.org/debian main contrib and after, i used aptitude update – Fabricio Jul 27 '16 at 11:29
  • i've tested in Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop . Works fine – Fabricio Jul 27 '16 at 12:03

Solve the problem with:

wget http://ftp.br.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/m/msttcorefonts/ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.6_all.deb

#Dependence for dpkg 
apt-get install cabextract 

#Install fonts by dpkg
dpkg -i ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.6_all.deb


After this the report works fine.
