    Setting up a new font

    How do you set up a new font? (.TTF) If anyone can give me a useful answer, I will be very grateful.

    Re: Setting up a new font

    Hello amateur-geek!
    This is how I install fonts.
    Open a terminal and type: "sudo nautilus"
    Then inside the file browser, navigate to "/usr/share/fonts"

    You can then click and drag your font file into this folder. Make sure you close both the terminal and the file browser when you exit.

    If you want to use the font as a default in Ubuntu, in the menu go to System > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts and then select the one you want to replace. The font will be there in alphabetical order.

    I hope this helps!
