I want to install more text fonts on Gimp. Currently I have only the default fonts.
Where can I download and install them?
I am on Ubuntu 13.04, using gnome - lastest version.

All you need to do is: add the fonts that you want to Ubuntu, and then you can use them in Gimp.
Download the font(s) that you like, and once downloaded, you can double click on the font file, and that will open Font Viewer, just click on install, and you're done. Take a look at Dafont for a great selection of fonts.
To download, just click on the download button.
Once you click download you will see the image below, just click OK.
Double click the font, and that will open the Font viewer, as shown above, just click on Install.
For some reason, on Ubuntu 19.04 + GIMP 2.10 after installing the font in Ubuntu it did not appear in Gimp, not after restarting Gimp, nor restarting the system itself. What solved the problem was to copy the .TTF font file to one of GIMP fonts directory. Font directories can be managed in
Edit > Preferences > Directories > Fonts menu. In my case, that directory was
TTF go to
OTF go to
for gimp only
