Downloaded and installed Ubuntu 16.04 from the Ubuntu website 3 days ago. Updated the OS using commands in terminal. I need to install a font Rachana.ttf, which is available on my computer's desktop. But Font Viewer not running? It just shows the busy cursor spinning, but eventually does nothing? Is there a fix? Even though i right click on the font, the listed menu doesn't show "install font"


There is a bug with this issue. Try to update gnome-font-viewer. Latest version is 3.16.2.

To check version.

gnome-font-viewer --version

If your gnome-font-viewer version is old, update with following command.

sudo apt install gnome-font-viewer

After update try to open your font again.
