Thanks a lot, it is 2019 and I was having this problem... the solution was:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

cp -r /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts $JAVA_HOME/lib/fonts

sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig

Make sure that $JAVA_HOME is used by your application, otherwise you will need to copy those fonts folder over all jvm avaiable on the machine

  Copy your Fonts on the following directory JDK_HOME\\jre\\lib\\fonts

I have resolved this like this:

first get the microsoft core fonts. In Ubuntu 12.04 this package is called: ttf-mscorefonts-installer

After install you can see the fonts in: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts

copy all the ttf files to your JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/fonts

I had to do a restart of iReport to be resolved of the error.

Go Here, I believe this is has updated fonts. Many other posts
had links that were no longer valid or older versions.
 
For me I was missing this last step which the instruction on sourceforge had
rpm -ivh $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.5-1.noarch.rpm

Here is a blog post that shows how to add and use Microsoft fonts in Java on Linux: How to Install Windows Fonts in Java on Linux.

For linux fedora 30 only create directory truetype on /usr/share/fonts

cd /usr/share/fonts 

mkdir truetype

and copy fonts from windows/fonts to directory you created
