How to remove Microsoft Fonts

Hi, just tried out PlayOnLinux to help me installing Ragnarok Online. Anyway, long story short, it told me I need to install Microsoft Fonts when installing PlayOnLinux. I didn't see a choice not to, so I let it.

I would like to remove all the fonts that POL downloaded since it changed my fonts in most of my applications (like FireFox) and made things really ugly!

Can anyone help me removing these fonts? I tried uninstalling POL but that did not remove the fonts that were changed.


(if you need info about my system, I am running linux mint 7)

Yeah, I saw that post when I searched the forums for an answer, I tried deleting the .PlayOnLinux folder from my home directory, but Firefox is still using the fonts that got installed when I installed PlayOnLinux.

Do the fonts installed by POL get installed or copied to any other directories?

I guess I got it figured out. After a couple reboots and clearing the cache on Firefox, things seem to have gone back to normal.
