I need to install xorg-x11-fonts. I was searching in Google how to install them but couldn't really find anything. I need it for Ubuntu 11.04.


There is no xorg-x11-fonts package in Ubuntu. There is a package by that name in Fedora, but rather than packaging up a bunch of fonts into a single package they are split up on Ubuntu in packages such as xfonts-base, xfonts-100dpi, xfonts-75dpi, xfonts-cyrillic, etc.

Some of these font packages are probably already installed on your system, but for the most part scalable outline fonts are preferred to these legacy bitmap fonts.

If there is a particular bitmap font you need to install, you can probably find it by searching for packages containing xfonts in their name.
