HowTo: Install fonts for LaTeX in Ubuntu 9.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 14, 2009
This HowTo is for TeXLive on Ubuntu 9.04. It assumes that texlive is installed. It describes how to install the LuxiMono font for use with LaTeX. The concepts here should apply to other fonts.
LuxiMono is a nice font for program code listings in LaTeX. It is available at www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/LuxiMono/.
The important documents are:
a) TeX-on-Debian.* -- available in txt, pdf, and html in /usr/share/doc/tex-common/
b) README.luximono -- came with LuxiMono.
Here are the steps I followed (use sudo before each of the commands in this description to create a system-wide installation):
1. Download LuxiMono.zip and unzip it creating the LuxiMono directory, which contains the files referred to below.
2. Copy the file ul9.zip into the directory
and unzip it.
3. Create the directory:
and copy the .pfb files into it.
4. Create the directory:
Installing Fonts on Debian
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 1, 2007
I am looking for a simple way to add nice new fonts to my Lenny / Testing system. I really did do a search and found a guide from 2000 which I did not feel sufficient using. Anyone have any ideas on what I should do? I downloaded a tarball of fonts and now have a lot of them but I am not sure where to put them or install them. I would assume there is a simple directory that houses fonts for the entire system so any one can use them but I can't find it...
Here is what I did have have so far...

adding/removing *.ttf fonts in suse9.3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2006
I have Suse 9.3 installed (non-multiboot).
When I try to install (windoos)*.ttf fonts in using:
control center/system administration/font installer ..
*some* fonts do install, but after a few, *or* when I try to remove
some of the big bulk of fonts present the system slows down very
much, the mouse makes only interrupted movements, and the harddisk
light on the computer stays on: there is something going on...
I can wait a long time, nothings gets better...
I can only shutdown in using another window (ctrl-alt, f2 or so), the
machine shuts down very slowly...
I have tried the same procedure some times, but it gives no better
Is this normal, do I something wrong?

Where are the fonts files stored at in Linux. I am looking for the decker.ttf file but any will do.
How to manage Ubuntu fonts?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2009
I use a program called "Fonty Python" to install truetype fonts in Ubuntu, but I still don't like the insanely long list of so many practically identical fonts -- where are Ubuntu's fonts stored, so I can get rid of everything I don't want?
Fonts looks strange
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 23, 2012
Not sure if this is normal or not but after coming from Windows and Mac using Ubuntu 12.04 beta the fonts on webpages and round the system look blurry and out of place, it's driving me mad.
Missing Fonts, or incompatibilities?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2012
I have been using Ubuntu 11.10 for about 2 weeks on a Toshiba Satellite and there have been troubles with the fonts, however, they have grown more frequent with the most recent update. (I installed 35 updates just tonight)
Here are some things that I have noticed:
*Happens in Firefox and in Apps from the USC (software center) but not in Libre
*Doesn't seem to affect certain keys or letters, seems to be happening at random places all over the screen
*Happens more after an update, A LOT more.
*Doesn't affect images, strictly font, and after changing the fonts for firefox (don't know how to do so for other installed apps) the issue persist.
I will attempt to attach a screen captures...sometimes I mess up when trying to attach screen captures. :/
Firefox Fonts with Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 18, 2013
I'm new to using Ubuntu/Linux and I have been trying to get the right font for a few days now but am still struggling.
Some websites are tolerable but more often than not it is a real battle to read text on websites and it just doesn't look or feel good. I think I am using "Unity" ?
I don't know whether it is Ubuntu or the fact that this laptop I have acquired is just a 13.3" screen (I am used to a bit bigger than that), or could be both.
I have the microsoft core fonts installed and another thing which was reccomended to me is ubuntu-restricted-extras but it still isn't what I'm looking for.
I want to remain using Firefox if possible, and just to test I tried out a few of the same pages in Chromium Web Browser but it looks near identical to what it does in Firefox.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
