I want to install a Swedish font on Ubuntu, but I don't know its package name. What is its name?

What's a Swedish font? I thought Swedish uses the Latin alphabet. Do you mean Swedish translations? – David Foerster Mar 5 '15 at 11:36

The package you are looking for is language-pack-sv

Install via the terminal with:

sudo apt-get install language-pack-sv

or through the Software Center:

This should help: sudo apt-cache search language-pack | grep Swedish – Andrejs Cainikovs Dec 23 '11 at 13:42

Then most likely your repositories are disabled. – Andrejs Cainikovs Dec 28 '11 at 8:26
