How to install fonts in Ubuntu

Sometimes you may want to install fonts from the web or from your Windows installation into Ubuntu. Installing fonts for the current user is pretty easy.

First, copy the fonts you want to install into a ~/.fonts directory. Next, let the system build font information cache files for these fonts. To do that run this command from anywhere:

$ fc-cache -fv

Tried with: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
