Hello! I'm a college student and am currently running Libre on Linux Mint 17 Quiana KDE. I'm having a problem adding the title name of my document to the header page numbers. How can I do this or can it be done? Also my school requires me to submit my work with Times New Roman font. Can I add this to the font choices in Linux? I'm running Libre version:

There are 2 choices that I know of for Times New Roman. Refer to your chosen PPA, Repo or whatever method for the following:

MS made all the core M$ fonts open-source (yes, really). On my ancient Debian 6.0 the name is ttf-mscorefonts-installer.

Synaptic also says:-

NOTE: the package ttf-liberation contains free variants of the Times, Arial and Courier fonts. It's better to use those instead unless you specifically need one of the other fonts from this package.

I do not actually agree with that statement. The core-fonts are very good to my mind.


The key information that you need for Headers is that the Header (and Footer) are tied to the Page Style. Thus, any text and/or Fields within the Header/Footer will be repeated across all pages that have the same Page Style applied to it. Free Text may be entered into the Header (styled as you wish), as may Fields (such as (menu):InsertFieldsPage Number).

If you wish to vary the Header and/or Footer on any individual pages then you need to apply a different Page Style to that page(s).

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔)
