I have been using Ubuntu in the office lately. However, I did not have the standard fonts that you would find on a Windows system for use in documents. So I simply used the following method to add them:
# sudo aptitude install msttcorefonts
For these fonts to display in 96dpi you may also need to add a line in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
# sudo vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Add this line in the Section “Device” somewhere before EndSection
Option "DPI" "96x96"
Then you will need to either restart X or reboot to apply the settings. After the restart/reboot you can use the following command to see if you are using 96dpi.
# xdpyinfo | grep resolution
