G'day manjeet, Welcome to Linux.org


Install the restricted extras
As a Ubuntu derivative, Zorin OS 16 lacks a few multimedia codecs and the Microsoft True Type fonts in the default install. Not sure if you need these, I often forget to add them myself nowadays and don’t really feel their absence anymore. A few years back this step was essential however as websites just didn’t render properly without the fonts. As a web developer, that was a big no-no at the time.

Well, just fire up the terminal, you still want them:

sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras
