The Minion Pro font is bundled by Adobe with Adobe Reader. If you install Reader on Linux, the font files are copied to /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Resource/Font (that's where they are on my system), and if you install Reader on Windows, they are copied to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Resource\Font, or some similar path depending on the version of Reader.

Thanks for the hint.
I installed AdobeReader on my Fedora system, copied the *.otf fonts to my ~/.fonts folder, and removed AdobeReader again. I don't like Adobe Reader on my system, it takes much too much space. I use evince. But I do like that Minion Pro font, and now I can use it!

You don't actually need to install Reader to get to the fonts. Use dpkg -x (or msiexec -a on Windows) to extract the contents of the deb or msi.
