July 22nd, 2009, 02:49 PM
Copy/paste these commands:
tar zxvf macfonts.tar.gz
sudo mv macfonts /usr/share/fonts/
sudo fc-cache -f -v
MAC fonts are now installed:
Now change the default system fonts
+ Right click on your Desktop
+ Change Desktop Backround
+ Click on Fonts and select those you like

Thanks a ton. That saved me a lot of time.
I am a mac user, but in office I use Ubuntu via VBox on a Win XP machine.
Lucida Grande is my favorite text font.

Anyone else that installed these have trouble with the Lucida Mac font? Everything works fine except all numbers do not have the same bolded, defined look.
