The name of the font package will be different on different distros. For Red Hat (rpm-based distros), try these packages

sudo yum install liberation-fonts-common liberation-sans-fonts liberation-serif-fonts liberation-mono-fonts

Some fonts may not work, but all true type fonts should work without a problem.

You should be able to copy the TTF files into /usr/share/fonts/ on the Linux machine and they will be available for all users on MOST applications.

What application are you trying to use the fonts in?  

Also what are the permissions of the fonts?

try running this command:

chown -R root:root /user/share/fonts/; chmod -R 755 /usr/share/fonts/
