I really like the Ubuntu Font Family, and frequently use it in my documents. At school, I want to be able to use the font family so my documents that make at home using Ubuntu show up correctly at school. However, we do not have permission to use Font View (which also allows you to install fonts), so I copied the .ttf files for the Ubuntu font into the
/home/Library/Fonts directory. The fonts now show up in the list of available fonts.
However, when I click on Ubuntu Light, it uses the Ubuntu font, and when I click on Ubuntu, it uses the Ubuntu Light font. This is irritating because my documents that I make on my home computer show up in the opposite font at school, and documents I make at school show up in the opposite font at home. This is really irritating. My school uses Mac OSX 10.4. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: This happens with Windows too, so it's something wrong with the font that Ubuntu put on the website.
