Estos son los pasos que hay que seguir para instalar las fuentes de Microsoft en Fedora 13 para usar con OpenOffice:

Como root instalamos las dependencias:

# yum -y install rpm-build cabextract ttmkfdir xorg-x11-xfs
# yum install http://dl.atrpms.net/f13-x86_64/atrpms/stable/chkfontpath-1.10.1-2.fc13.x86_64.rpm --nogpgcheck

Como usuario normal armamos el rpm con las fuentes:

mkdir -p $HOME/rpmbuild/SPECS
cd $HOME/rpmbuild/SPECS
wget http://pfrields.fedorapeople.org/packages/SPECS/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.spec
rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.spec

Como root instalamos el rpm:

rpm -ivh $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.noarch.rpm

Luego iniciar OpenOffice y ya deberíamos ser capaces de utilizar Arial, Times New Roman, etc.

These are the required step to install Microsoft fonts in Fedora 13 for OpenOffice:

We would need to install all the required dependencies, as root:

# yum -y install rpm-build cabextract ttmkfdir xorg-x11-xfs
# yum install http://dl.atrpms.net/f13-x86_64/atrpms/stable/chkfontpath-1.10.1-2.fc13.x86_64.rpm --nogpgcheck

We make the rpm package (as a normal user):

mkdir -p $HOME/rpmbuild/SPECS
cd $HOME/rpmbuild/SPECS
wget http://pfrields.fedorapeople.org/packages/SPECS/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.spec
rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.spec

Then, as root again, we should install the rpm:

rpm -ivh $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.noarch.rpm

Then we launch OpenOffice and we would be able to use Arial, Times New Roman, etc.

    No need to build, package already available from:

    There is no need to install either ttmkfdir nor xorg-x11-xfs. Rather edit the spec file to remove the requirements before building the rpm.

    The original spec file is several years old and has serious bitrot. It worked fine in Red Hat 9, and still sort of works in RHEL/CentOS 5 but not in Fedora.
