I downloaded the segoe font and attempted to install it by making a .font folder in \home, didn't work.

How is this done in xubuntu?

In normal Ubuntu you have to run the following command in the terminal after copying the font to ~/.fonts/:

sudo fc-cache -f

I think it is the same for xubuntu.

Great! itīs easy, almost as easy as pie.... first, I suggest downloading/copying all fonts, such as ttf to the same folder. Then,

sudo thunar
:shock:. Then open your new fonts folder and COPY all fonts you want to paste to

/usr/share/fonts/truetype (I used truetype folder because thatīs the kind of font I copied.) Then PASTE the new fonts. Close THUNAR.
Last step is go back to TERMINAL and type

sudo fc-cache -f

Excellent, thanks this helped me on xubuntu 11.04 as well! :)
