Just as an addition to this, it was unproblematic for me in Jessie but didn't work properly in Stretch, some fonts did not show up as options in Libre Office [e.g. Times New Roman wasn't there]. If it gives you problems uninstall and reinstall through Synaptic, that worked for me.

It's also in the contrib packages section, which is not enabled in Debian by default.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.6, Pale Moon 27.3.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-9, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.3, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6

It is available: https://packages.debian.org/search?keyw ... ection=all

You don't have the contrib section enabled, per my first post.
