Failure to download extra data files

• Dec 7, 2016 - 10:42

Since upgrading to Musescore 2.03, every time I restart, Ubuntu flashes up the error message:

Failure to download extra data files

The error message offers an automatic correction which changes nothing. I have tried manually removing and reinstalling ttf-mscorefonts-installer (it is installed), but that also changes nothing.

Musescore seems to be functioning perfectly, but the error message is an irritation.

Any suggestions?

Musescore 2.03 on Ubuntu 16.04


The mscorefonts aren't MuseScore's; they are MicroSoft's (MS core fonts). I got this error in relation to the installation of Wine and further reading states that there is a bug in ubuntu. Periodically I think I have got rid of it but it pops up again intermittently.
