You can use any otf to ttf converter, for example, fontforge. It's free:

perfect, I installed fontforge...everything up, now how do I use this program?

Been a long time since I used a linux platform....could you give me instructions on how to make the conversion.

I get a user interface and I'm able to open fonts, but what do I do from there to convert it?

I tried 'Save As' and it does not work to make the conversion correctly....

On unix you just say:

Generate(myfont + ".ttf")
