    These fonts are restricted so you won't find them in the main repros.

    Have a look here : Installing Microsoft Fonts on openSUSE 11.0 - openSUSE Forums

    And a link to the source : Ben Kevan’s Blog > Installing Microsoft Fonts on openSUSE 11.0

    Cheers,
    Wj
    Have a lot of fun!

    Or just search for "verdana" in the software search section on the openSUSE website and you'll get results with "webcore" in their name, these include: verdana, arial, comic sans ms, times new roman and many more

    Or just copy them off a active windows partition if you have one in your pc or your network

    For the most basic fonts, just use the openSUSE 10.3 script found at:

    Index of /update/10.3/scripts

    Run 'fetchmsttfonts.sh' as root.

    Actually, just doing a comparison "side-by-side" as it were, the almost exact match height, width and weight to the Times New Roman and Arial fonts are:

    Nimbus Roman No9 L
    Nimbus Sans

    the Liberation fonts are a close second.

    I do not know how good a match it is, but I like the Bitstream-vera font set too.

    That was the point of the Nimbus fonts; but if you send things to MS Word users in Nimbus, they may not always look 'right' - so I always use the MS fonts for things I am sending to MS users.
