How to Install Microsoft Fonts on Fedora 36 Linux

Most Linux Distributions use open-source fonts to substitute Microsoft’s iconic typefaces like Arial, Courier New, and Times. Red Hat created the Liberation family to replace these similar-looking but different sizes — all you have to do is select your preferred font when editing documents so that they’ll be readable without any disruptions!

For users who want to install Microsoft fonts and want the option to use them in LibreOffice, the following tutorial will teach you how to install Microsoft fonts on Fedora 36 Linux using the command line terminal and how to remove the fonts if required.

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh

Comments and Conclusion

Overall, Microsoft fonts are proprietary software, so not all Linux users would be thrilled to install these depending on your stance about open-source software. However, with the right font, color, and text size, your creative work will be more readable depending on your situation, work environment, and audience, and these fonts may be required to do this.
