Does CentOS 6.8 have access to the "ttf-mscorefonts-installer" package?

This package includes Arial and Times New Roman and many of the core
fonts you get with a Windows install.  I use the DEB package, but
hopefully there is a RPM package as well.

On my main laptop, I have Arial in "normal" style, monospaced,
condensed, narrow, and rounded font sets.

Actually, I have over 180 fonts in my ".font"folder, and have over 14GB
of font files on my "file server".

No need to add fonts, LibreOffice will substitute quite easily with the Liberation family of fonts which are pretty well identical to Arial, the same with Times font. No need to install any MS fonts if you don't need to. The fonts shipped with LibreOffice are such that they will offer the largest success with respect to interoperability with fonts.


Yes, I know that.

The question seemed to state that they wanted/needed Arial and Times New Roman specifically. So I made my comment about how to get it.

I do use a lot of "compatible" or "similar" fonts so I get what I want/need without paying for the "name brand" font's price. For Liberation, I have the Mono, Serif, Sans Serif, and Sans Serif Narrow, versions installed. Sometimes I have both Narrow and Condensed versions of fonts, when they seems to be different. Liberation only has Narrow, but Arial seems to have both.

My only trouble for font selection is when I am dealing with a Windows user that uses Word, not LO, who need the document[s] to have fonts specific to their Windows system. That was one reason I installed the MS Core Fonts package.
