fonts won't install

I need to install (for my daughter) some fonts. Otherwise the word docs in question won't open.
It is crucial to get those fonts working, because the publishing house demands it.
I followed this instruction (with some tweaks, like fonts->Fonts):
https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/linux/faq/cxofficereregisterfonts

-I unpacked the fonts in the according dir
-I even renamed one of them to a name which won't contain spaces
But I always end up here:

'/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine' '--bottle' 'Microsoft_Office_2016' '--untrusted' '--wait-children' '--' 'cxinstallfonts.exe' ~/.cxoffice/Microsoft_Office_2016/drive_c/windows/Fonts/Brill\ Italic\ 2.06\ 051.ttf 
copy failed

Is that to be expected?

Ubuntu 18.04
Crossoveroffice 0.19

Okay so the first thing I noticed here is the in the command after ```/windows/Fonts/Brill``` the forward-slashes are changed to backward slashes  and there are also spaces in between them so instead of ```
'/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine' '--bottle' 'Microsoft_Office_2016' '--untrusted' '--wait-children' '--' 'cxinstallfonts.exe' ~/.cxoffice/Microsoft_Office_2016/drive_c/windows/Fonts/Brill\ Italic\ 2.06\ 051.ttf 
copy failed

``` it should go like this 

'/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine' '--bottle' 'Microsoft_Office_2016' '--untrusted' '--wait-children' '--' 'cxinstallfonts.exe' ~/.cxoffice/Microsoft_Office_2016/drive_c/windows/Fonts/Brill/Italic/2.06/051.ttf
