How to install fonts in Linux

This is a simple way to install fonts in Graphical Linux Distributions.
Press Alt-F2 to open the run dialog. Type the following into the text box and click “Run”.

fonts://

The window that opens allows you to copy and paste new font files to install them.

This is the another way to install font using command line,

sudo gksu nautilus /usr/share/fonts/truetype/

Then you should get new GUI window and create a new folder with appropriate name and copy your font into it. Close the widow and come back to command line.

sudo fc-cache -f -v

Thats all about the installation...
