Installing / adding fonts in ubuntu

Ubuntu comes with variety of fonts. But if we still have an urge for installing some extra fonts from windows or some other fonts how we do it. To add the fonts in ubuntu is very easy and can be done in few steps.

Fonts normally get installed in /usr/share/fonts/truetype. Simple way of adding font is to make one folder in said path and copy the font files in it. To open this folder with root access type sudo nautalius. This will open the file explorer in root mode.

The other way is to add the fonts in /home//.fonts

To refresh or update font cache run sudo fc-cache -f -v.
