Does anyone know if there will be (or already are) any possibilities to use the ubuntu font family for mathematical typesetting in LaTeX?

It says “Dalton Maag, a London-based studio, has laid the foundations for the Ubuntu font project with a beautiful design that aims to produce every character to support every language and interest in the world.” on the project web site of ubuntu. So I would expect something like this because maths is an interest.

You follow the steps in this answer at tex.SE. This should help you to get it working on Ubuntu. – qbi Feb 7 '13 at 23:18
I'm aware of that. However, this does not work for typesetting math, as far as I know. – Wauzl Feb 8 '13 at 10:22
