Computer emergency


I just clicked a link someone posted, and was punched in the face by a page full of comic sans ms. After recovering from the shock, it hit me.

Wait a minute. I'm running linux, and one of my favorite things about running linux is that I won't have to see comic sans unless someone's mean enough to put it in an image. Checked in openoffice, and yeah, it's there. Comic sans MS is an installed font on my laptop!! Help! How do I get rid of it?!! I don't know enough about ubuntu to add and remove fonts.

I also don't know how it got on there in the first place, but it probably came in with a wine update or something.

How do I get rid of it?

EDIT: Crisis averted. I found where the fonts were hiding and DELETED comic sans.
