What do you mean by "default fonts"?

Are the fonts names shown in the font list of the program?

LO seems to list the font that was use to create the document, even if the font is not installed on the computer it is being viewed on.

Some ways that is good, and others it is not.

Hi :)
Fonts are tricky. Luckily someone on this list can often help people find an appropriate font. The OS should have a lot of free fonts included and it's usually possible to get a few more through searches. MS core fonts can usually be added as a single package. For others you need to do a search, avoid them, pay up or find someone else that has already done a search for nearest equivalents.
Apols and regards from

Created a new presentation under LO 3.4.4; did it in a brand-new user account,
to make sure I did not bring along anything left over from the days I used
Sun's Star Office.

Surprise, the default fonts for both the slides (Thorndale) and the notes
(Albany) are not installed on my box, and worse, they do not exist for free
download but must be purchased.

I read on the net that the problem is a carry over from the days of Star
Office, and later Open Office.

Should not Libre Office get rid of those relics of the past, and put as
defaults some fonts that are available for free ?
