Then why does LO open a new presentation using fonts that are not installed on
the system ?



Because the creator of your template did not think twice. See menu:File>Properties... "Template" at the bottom of the first tab. The best work-around for this situation is a font replacement table under menu:Tools>Options>Fonts...

For what I have seen over the years, 90%+ of the fonts we use have free versions that are very similar. Similar enough that most people will not notice the difference.

I think Liberation Sans can replace Albany and Liberation Serif replaced Thorndale.

Both are free fonts.

below is a quote about this.
There are three sets of Liberation fonts: Sans (a substitute for Arial, Albany, Helvetica, Nimbus Sans L, and Bitstream Vera Sans), Serif (a substitute for Times New Roman, Thorndale, Nimbus Roman, and Bitstream Vera Serif) and Mono (a substitute for Courier New, Cumberland, Courier, Nimbus Mono L, and Bitstream Vera Sans Mono). Specifically, Sans is closest to Arial; Serif works best as a replacement for Times New Roman; and Mono is a near-twin to Courier New.

Supporting what Webmaster wrote above, I've been using the OpenOffice/Libre Office Suite since the .9 something beta of OpenOffice. Originally OpenOffice did not have Arial or Times New Roman. It is my recollection that these fonts were open source to supply a rough equivalent of Arial and Times New Roman. I'm guessing that the original Albany and Thorndale must have been open source back then.
