All fonts in your ~/.fonts directory as well as in /usr/share/fonts can be used in OpenOffice.org. Note that OpenType fonts are not supported in OpenOffice.org.

I found this wiki very helpful:


Basically, you add fonts to the system, and then the programs, such as Open Office can find and use them. First use Synaptic to install msttcorefonts because they have a lot of the common Microsoft fonts, then add any other fonts to the fonts directory (I create another directory inside the fonts directory named "custom" so I can copy and move all of my specialty fonts from one computer to another easily). Anyway, the page noted above tells you how to do all that.
