The standard font should have been Ubuntu Light as indicated in this blog post on Ubuntu Vibes.

You can see this particular font and download the whole Ubuntu font family here: http://font.ubuntu.com/#charset-light


Do you really mean 11.04 - Natty Narwal or 10.04 Lucid Lynx? Since 10.10 Ubuntu uses the Ubuntu Font, 10.04 used DejaVu which can be installed as ttf-dejavu package.

I think the same applies to the Monotype variants.

  • I want the default font used by the Ubuntu 11.04.
