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

    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.

    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?
