Although there is supposed to be a monospace font in the family, the default package doesn't come with it. I tried getting ttf-ubuntu-monospace but there aren't any packages with that name. How/where can I get the monospace font?


Ubuntu Monospace comes preinstalled with Ubuntu 11.10 and it is the default terminal font.

If you want to install it on non-Ubuntu or pre-11.10 machines, download it from font.ubuntu.com!


The Ubuntu monospace fonts have been released since this question was asked: http://font.ubuntu.com/

    They also come with Ubuntu 11.10, and in fact Ubuntu Mono 13 is the new default terminal font. Oct 18 '11 at 20:45
  • Ubuntu Mono Regular works fine for me, to display underscores
