Installing Fonts in the Gnome Desktop Environment

This article has been duplicated and modified from here. The reason I am duplicating it here is because if I don’t, with my luck, the website will disappear and we will all be lost forever!

Here we go (if you click the link above, the article is actually longer, but I took the part that actually does the job and pasted it here):

  • Go to your home folder
  • Enable “Show Hidden Files” option from Nautilus View menu
  • Then create new folder with name “.fonts” (with dot in front)
  • Now in new folder copy all your true type fonts
  • Now run the following command:
sudo fc-cache -f -v
