Hello

I use libreoffice-bin and would like to have some more fonts. For instance Times New Roman. I don't have it in the fonts of libreoffice. How can I add it?

The fonts I have installed on the system are:

Code:

There is a package called corefonts. Emerge it. The fonts should show up in libreoffice.

You can also copy fonts to /usr/share/fonts/corefonts if you already have them as files somewhere.

Thanks a lot. ;-)

I didn't have it. I emerged it and restarted libreoffice. Now it works nicely.

for non-system, non-portage fonts I wold add them in:

Code:
~/.fonts/


u can also 'steal' fonts from a mac or m$$$$$ install and do something like:

Code:
~/.fonts/m$$$/
~/.fonts/o$$x/

That works, too. Especially recommended when you're replacing the crippled Arial etc. that come with corefonts with the ones from a Windows box. Otherwise they'll be overwritten by the next corefonts update.

If you have multiple users, you can put fonts in /usr/local/share/fonts/<mk_a_dir> so everyone can see them.
