Check in LibreOffice Writer to see if the following Microsoft True Type Core Fonts have been installed:

⠀Andale Mono
⠀Arial Black
⠀Comic Sans MS
⠀Courier New
⠀Times New Roman
⠀Trebuchet MS

If all of these fonts appear in the font list in LibreOffice Writer, then the Microsoft True Type Core Fonts have been installed successfully. If not, see this answer
