There is no fonts directory in /usr/share at all on my system. How can I go about installing Microsoft True Type fonts in Centos 7? I only need Arial and Georgia.

Try install one of these using rpm (I'm not sure which is better):

BTW, if your problem is not compatible issue, please use free/libre fonts. There are many beautiful ones, such as DejaVu, Droid and URW.

This is documented at: http://mscorefonts2.sourceforge.net/

yum install curl cabextract xorg-x11-font-utils fontconfig
yum install https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/mscorefonts2/rpms/msttcore-fonts-installer-2.6-1.noarch.rpm

A lot of additional packages related to fonts and media is available in this repository mentioned in the CentOS Wiki.

yum install wine

Installs most all the fonts needed, when the repository is added, as per the wiki here: https://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/MultimediaOnCentOS7

yum -y install http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-5.el7.nux.noarch.rpm

I'm not sure how trustworthy the sources in that repository is, but the same can be said for most anything regardless of source - until we have a more widespread and healthy Linux auditing community.
