Yes I know this has been mentioned a lot, but can someone give me a suggestion for a good looking linux font package?

If you go to fontsy or dafont.com download a font you like and run this code:


gksu nautilus /usr/share/fonts/truetype


in the terminal or by pressing alt + f2

and copy the extracted font folder into the truetype font directory then you have your new font installed.

Hi

My favourite font for the terminal is terminus



sudo apt-get install xfonts-terminus


Kind regards

I actually really like the Ubuntu font, which should be in /fonts by default ...

You should be able to check it out in Open or Libreoffice.

The Ubuntu font is a good one for general purpose interface and display.

For code -- I've looked and looked, tried and tried, and I still keep coming back to Courier 10.

Is it just me?
