Times New Roman and Arial MS fonts are not free,
both come with a price.

There is a script to do this in Pardus.

If that doesn't help, you basically need to do the following:
  1. Get the Microsoft truetype fonts from somewhere (in most countries it is not technically legal to grab them from C:\Windows\FONTS on a Windows machine and put them on a USB key...). The web core fonts used to be available directly from the Microsoft website and are now on SourceForge, but this requires getting cabextract working.
  2. Make a directory to put them in, ie /usr/share/fonts/mscorefonts.
  3. Copy the font files into the directory, and rebuild the font cache by running fc-cache.

I copied all files from C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\ to /usr/share/fonts/mscorefonts/ and ran
# fc-cache

This screwed up the fonts in firefox, and i removed the fonts and again ran fc-cache and it returned to normal

I want to use these fonts in OOWriter. But they didnt show up in OOWriter.
What should I do?

Fonts for OpenOffice only ..

cd /home/<username>/.openoffice.org2/user/

mkdir fonts

.. and copy the fonts into this new fonts/ directory.
