There are many ways.

If your distro ships them, you can search in your package manager for corefonts.

If not, search for liberation, an alternative font set offered by red hat, which aims to be a free replacement of the ms fonts.

Another alternative is to pick them from a windows installation and drop them into ~/.fonts/, you can put any ttf font that you wish there. They shouldn't need any additional setup.

see "Install Microsoft Truetype Fonts"

the " Liberation Fonts " should be installed by default
