we sometimes need to install new font in Ubuntu. To do so first download the desired truetype font(.ttf) and save it in ur harddisk. Then copy the .ttf file to truetype folder of the Ubuntu by running this command in the terminal >

sudo cp /location_of_the_downloaded_font/downloaded_font.ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype

then run this command in the terminal
sudo fc-cache -f
