In this article, we’ll show you how to install Times New Roman fonts on Linux (Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, RHEL, CentOS, Rocky Linux).

On Ubuntu/Debian distros, you can install the Times New Roman font software package from the default repository:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

Accept the license agreement and confirm the font installation. After that, Times New Roman fonts will be available in all Linux apps.

On rpm-based distributions (CentOS, RHEL. Rocky Linux, Oracle Linux), installing the Times New Roman font is a bit more complicated. You will have to build and install the rpm package with the fonts yourself.

Install the required packages using the yum (dnf) package manager:

$ sudo yum -y install rpm-build ttmkfdir cabextract

Download SPEC font file msttcorefonts-2.5-1.spec (Microsoft’s TrueType core fonts for Linux)

$ wget
$ sudo rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.5-1.spec

After that, the RPM package will appear in the $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/ directory. Install it:

$ sudo yum install /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.5-1.noarch.rpm

Restart the xfs and check that the fonts have been successfully installed:
