I am running my report via the pdf emitter on a linux machine, using the report engine api. The report uses arial font. On windows, the font shows up correctly. On linux, the report comes out with another font. I want the arial font to show up correctly on linux.

Additionally, I want to access fonts as they are already stored on the linux system. I do not want to copy individual .ttf files into a directory and then add that directory to the font.xml file. What would be the best way to accomplish this?

What linux distro are you using?

Andale Mono
Arial Black
Arial (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Comic Sans MS (Bold)
Courier New (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Georgia (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Times New Roman (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Trebuchet (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
Verdana (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)

Are all Microsoft Core Fonts that are in the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package. If you're using a linux system with an apt package manager you'd need to install these with this command.

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

That will install the fonts listed above.
