How to install local fonts in Ubuntu

Posted on: September 21, 2008

If you want to install your local font in Ubuntu (Hardy Heron) here is the step by step solutions to add your local font:

  1. Open the home directory (in my case /home/ferdous/)
  2. Click on “Show Hidden Files” from View menu to view the hidden directories. Alternatively you can press the keyboard combinations Ctrl+H.
  3. Create a directory named .fonts in your home directory
  4. Now paste the ttf fonts inside .fonts directory. (in my case sutonny mj.ttf)
  5. and you are done 🙂

Note: In *Nix OS .directory is for hidden directory
