This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Do you have the font installed in Ubuntu? – Uri Herrera Apr 24 '13 at 5:45

The font in question doesn't come installed with libreoffice. To install the font, you can download it Here or you can search for it . Once you download the font, just click it, and when the windows open, click on install. That's it. Open Libreoffice and enjoy.

No without install fonts is it possible? – user2138545 Apr 24 '13 at 6:04
No, you can't view a font in LibreOffice without installing it. It SHOULD display the font as Times New Roman but SAY that it is Gill Sans in the Font drop-down but LibreOffice isn't perfect :P – Ads20000 Apr 24 '13 at 6:05
