Install Extra Fonts in Ubuntu

Do you prefer Windows TrueType fonts to the default fonts installed by Ubuntu? The mscorefonts package containing most Microsoft fonts can be installed and configured easily in a few steps below: 

Go to Applications (or Main Menu) > Accessories > Terminal.
Paste sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer into the Terminal (by pressing Ctrl-Shift-V in the Terminal after copying the highlighted code).
Go to System > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts.
Click each of them, pick a font and size to configure for window title and so on.
   How about installing more TrueType fonts? With your font files, you can manually add them into the system following the steps below:

Press Alt+F2 to bring up "Run Application" window.
Paste gksu nautilus /usr/share/fonts/truetype into the box, click "Run" to open Nautilus in the right folder.
Create a new sub-folder and copy your files ending with .ttf into the sub-folder.
Enter sudo fc-cache -f -v in the Terminal to rebuild the font information.
   Besides this, you can run an application such as Font-Manager to view, install, remove fonts and so on.

   If you like the Tahoma font which is not included in the mscorefonts package, you might want to copy the two files tahoma.ttf and tahomabd.ttf from /Windows/Fonts and install them.
