Install MS fonts on Linux

see:
http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/opensource/how-do-i-install-and-use-fonts-in-linux/238

wget http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
 
yum install rpm-build cabextract
 
rpmbuild -ba msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
 
yum localinstall --nogpgcheck /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm

I found you’ll need to edit the spec file to change the mirror location:

mirror="http://download.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/"
