Add TrueType fonts to Ubuntu

  • If you download TrueType fonts from a site like DaFont you can easily use them with Ubuntu.

Here is how to add those TrueType fonts on Ubuntu:

  • Create a hidden (dot) directory in your home folder to store the fonts
mkdir ~/.fonts
  • Copy all of your TTF font files to the ~/.font directory
cp *.{TTF,ttf} ~/.font
  • Flush your system font cache
sudo fc-cache -f -v
  • You will now be able to use these fonts in your X11 applications.
