I want to use the new Ubuntu fonts that are default in Maverick in Lucid. Where to get it and how to install it?
The Ubuntu Font Family packages are being inserted into order (still supported) releases of Ubuntu as they are released. As of February 2011, those older releases are:
- Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid
- Ubuntu 09.10 Karmic
- Ubuntu 08.04 LTS Hardy
If you have software updates enabled then you should be able to select the package and install it from the Ubuntu Software Centre or using:
sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-font-family
For more details on the process (or to help validate that new releases are suitable for backporting as Stable Release Updates), see:
