need help with Times New Roman font.

Hi all.
I want to use "Times New Roman" font for my pictures.
Searching the list I have found this solution:

···

__________________
....
pylab.rc('font', family='serif')
pylab.rc('font', serif='Times New Roman')
pylab.rc('text', usetex='false')
......
____________________

yl=pylab.ylabel(r'Difference extinction coeffitient, ($M \times
cm^{-1})$',fontsize=8)
xl=pylab.xlabel("Wavelength, (nm)", fontsize=8)

However it still does not use Times new roman.

yl.get_fontname()

'DejaVu Serif'

xl.get_fontname()

'DejaVu Serif'

I have the font:

font_manager.findfont('Times New Roman')

'/usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/Times_New_Roman.ttf'

and here are rcparams

I can’t reproduce this issue, but there was a recent thread about this exact same issue, so apparently this is not a fluke of your system configuration. Since I can’t reproduce this issue, I probably won’t be of much help, but some specifics of your install might help others diagnose this issue. What version of Matplotlib are you running?

Best,
-Tony
