A font is a character style one may choose from in programs that support using them. Many fonts are available for Ubuntu users to choose from.

Font packages available in the Ubuntu repositories

Manually installing a font in Ubuntu

If you have a font file (.ttf) that is not available from the Ubuntu repositories, and you would like to use it in Ubuntu, one will want to manually install the font. For example, if one had SLIDA.ttf as the font file, one would perform the following via a terminal:

sudo mv SLIDA.ttf /usr/share/fonts
sudo fc-cache -f -v
