Help please! Need MS fonts

I just got into rocky linux and am working on an assignment that needs MS fonts.
I tried :

dnf install xorg-x11-font-utils

results:
No match for argument: xorg-x11-font-utils
Error: Unable to find a match: xorg-x11-font-utils

I am really in a rush, so I would really be happy if someone could help me out

See this page: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2059773 in particular:

maybe it’s just enough to install mkfontscale:

[root@rocky9 ~]# dnf search mkfontscale

In Rocky8 the xorg-x11-font-utils exists, so since you didn’t mention which version of Rocky, assumed you mean Rocky9 as it doesn’t have that package.

Thankyou,
Ahh yes sorry about not stating the version of Rocky linux

I just tested trying to build the rpm (on an AlmaLinux VM) and using the fc34 srpm which I got from https://rpmfind.net it built without any problems. Actually, if you can find the specific font you want in an rpm, you probably don’t have to go to that trouble, I would bet that downloading the rpm and doing sudo rpm -ivh <fontname.rpm> would work.
