I've followed the instructions here:

All of the msttcorefonts fonts are extracted into the /usr/share/fonts/msttcorefonts directory and are correctly owned by root. I even chmod'ed them to 777 to make sure this isn't a permission issue.

Yet, while the fonts show up in the fonts selection dialog, they don't actually display. Namely, Tahoma, when selected, doesn't actually show up as Tahoma, but as the regular Centos 'Sans' font. Why?!


Tahoma regular

Tahoma Bold

You might need to log out and log back in for font changes to take effect. – Dan D. Feb 20 '12 at 22:39
