How to build Microsoft fonts for OpenOffice

These are the required step to install Microsoft fonts in Fedora 13 for OpenOffice:

We would need to install all the required dependencies, as root:

# yum -y install rpm-build cabextract ttmkfdir xorg-x11-xfs
# yum install http://dl.atrpms.net/f13-x86_64/atrpms/stable/chkfontpath-1.10.1-2.fc13.x86_64.rpm –nogpgcheck

We make the rpm package (as a normal user):

mkdir -p $HOME/rpmbuild/SPECS
cd $HOME/rpmbuild/SPECS
wget http://pfrields.fedorapeople.org/packages/SPECS/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.spec
rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.spec

Then, as root again, we should install the rpm:

rpm -ivh $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.noarch.rpm

Then we launch OpenOffice and we would be able to use Arial, Times New Roman, etc.
