 You mean that you cann not add default fonts of this site to Tor for being
 unlicened, & you can only allow fonts installed by default on Linux ? If
 yes, this is bad news, because I tried Linux Arabic fonts on various
 distros. (Debian, CentOS, Linux Mint, openSUSE) & they are not good !

 In this case, it would be better if you give me a website offering free
 Arabic fonts that their licences allow you to include them in Tor. I will
 examine them on LibreOffice to see which of them nearest to "Arial" &
 "Time new romman" then will inform you ... Currently you supplied me in
 your 1st replay by link I got from it only 3 Arabic fonts, & best one was
 "Noto Naskh Arabic" ! Do you have other sites ?
