  I have Debian Lenny with Tex-Live.
  I chose Libertine.
 
  I download the zip file from CTAN and put files in dir
 tree and run texhash.
 
 For TeX font installing under Debian, see:
    file:/usr/share/doc/tex-common/TeX-on-Debian.html/ch4.html#s-sec-font-installation
 I hope this helps.

 Thanks Günter! It work ok!

 Three simple steps:
 
 * Open the document in LyX and set
 DocumentSettingsFonts to [Default].
 
 * find a font in the font catalogue (http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/)
 
 * Copy the Usage line(s) to DocumentSettingsLaTeX
 preamble
 
 
 This assumes that the font in question is installed in your
 system.
 Installing LaTeX fonts might be simple or not, depending on
 your LaTeX
 distribution and the particular font. 
 (Ask again, if necessary, giving OS, LaTeX disto and
 font.)
 
Thanks Günter.
I have Debian Lenny with Tex-Live.
I chose Libertine.
I download the zip file from CTAN and put files in dir tree and run texhash.
I put in preamble the Usage lines.
I get a blank document with pdflatex.

  If I choose Times Roman for roman font, what font I must to choose for sans 
 serif font If I want to obtain an aesthetically coherent aspect?

Linux Libertine is a very nice replacement for Times. It's also quite narrow, 
so it's perfect for a two-column layout. 

And it comes with a corresponding sans serif font (Biolinum).

 There is no definitive answer to this question, as there is
 no Times Sans. It depends on what you are after.
 
 The most used choice is a downscaled Helvetica. Although
 not necessarily
 aesthetically pleasing, it will go almost unnoticed (like
 Times for serif) because this is what people expect.
 
  I am using two columns in the book, therefore I am
 interested exactly
  in that: glyphs thinner with less space between.
 
 OK. 
 The next thing to consider is, whether the sans serif
 should match
 or stand out. In the first case, a semi-serif (like
 Ivona) might be
 advisable, in the latter a contrasting shape with maybe
 even different
 grey value like Avant Gard (or the TeX Gyre variant
 Adventor).

 font I must to choose for sans serif font If I want to

 Times is a font designed for newspapers (New York Times).
 Its glyphs are therefore thinner with less space between
 them. When you want to write a book, I could therefore not
 recommend Times as font.

I am using two columns in the book, therefore I am interested exactly in that: 
glyphs thinner with less space between.
 
 To get aesthetically coherent aspect for all 3 font
 types, the best is to use the corresponding Latin Modern
 font.

Yes, but encounter that font is of too thin outlines. I believe that it brings 
problems at the time of going to the press.
 
   The same for Bookman font.
