VGS-1313: Font lookup failed

I open a LOGIN.fmb with Oracle Form Builder – Layout Editor on Centos 6.4, then the pop-up display this error, VGS-1313: Font lookup failed. To solve this proble, I tried the steps as below :

===check list font installed
$ fc-list | wc -l
===65, no problem, but the form use Microsoft True Type

===after gooogling, Installing Microsoft TrueType fonts on Linux
===Install RPM: rpm -ivh cabextract-0.6-1.i386.rpm
===Download: msttcorefonts-1.3-4.spec
===Create RPM: rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-1.3-4.spec
===(This downloads Microsoft CAB files and extracts the fonts and builds an RPM. Uses wget, rpm-build, chkfontpath, fc-cache, ttmkfdir)
===This creates /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.rpm

The error still exist, then I execute
===yum install xorg-x11-fonts-base liberation-fonts (

===Successfully eliminate the problem
