Ubuntu Font Family

I only became aware of the development of the Ubuntu Font Family when Canonical announced a new exhibition at London’s Design Museum dedicated to the output of the project. Unfortunately, the exhibition closed at the end of February (2011), but the good news is that you can still see the font and, even better, use it on your desktop!

Go to the Ubuntu Font Family web page and click on the apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-font-family hyperlink. This will open a Launch Application dialog.

Select the apturl option (if it isn't already highlighted) and click OK.

That's it! To use the font on your desktop and in your applications, go to the Appearances editor (Preferences > Appearances) and select the Fonts tab. To use the font in Open Office, just scroll through the font options as usual.
