I'm having a similar problem with Monospace. As a workaround I've switched to using Bitstream Vera Sans Mono which looks very similar but doesn't have the bold problem. If you don't have it, you can install it by doing sudo apt-get install ttf-bitstream-vera.

You are not forced to use the font with free/open source applications. The license just states that you must distribute the license together with the font itself. The license also says what you have to do when you modify the font, but this is not your case. It is very short and you can read it here: http://font.ubuntu.com/ufl/ If you are seeking a more ...

I've read the licence you link to and I think you're quite okay to use the font freely on your website. The following parts of the licence are relevant: The requirement for fonts to remain under this licence does not require any document created using the fonts or their derivatives to be published under this licence, as long as the primary purpose of ...

Monospace refers to all fixed-width font. There is also a specific monospaced font called Monospace. Suppose you refer to the specific Monospace font. I use Monospace font in Libreoffice/Openoffice to align sequences under Ubuntu 12.04. I noticed the same issue: bold Monospace letters are wider than the regular Monospace letters of same size, though they ...

This is not an Ubuntu issue but rather an Opera bug and apparently it's been present since version 10.60 of the browser. It has been raised as such with the Opera team (the ID is DSK-324216) but as there has been no movement in nearly a year since reporting it, I'm not too hopeful of it ever being fixed. I discovered a workaround which involves creating a ....

As indicated in the comments, this sounds like a known problem with the Ubuntu Font Family. I would suggest filing a bug on Launchpad against this project so the developers know and can try doing something about it.

There is no "French font", "German font" and "English font"—those languages all use the Latin script system. The same is true for Farsi (fa); there is no single "Farsi font" file, but the Arabic (script) character set is used by several languages and a single font can cover all of these. If you have your own .ttf font that you are used to reading and would ...

it was "Helvetica" for me. Had to install for some Scribus compatibility and since started noticing fonts overlapping everywhere - documents, web pages, web-based editors. Removing the font fixed the issue. Yet to figure out why the incompatibility but as far as this issue is concerned, look for that font or any other recently installed fonts.

The standard font should have been Ubuntu Light as indicated in this blog post on Ubuntu Vibes. You can see this particular font and download the whole Ubuntu font family here: http://font.ubuntu.com/#charset-light

Muhammad Ahmad Zafar: To update you (as of October 2013). I have some newer snapshots from Dalton Maag with greater Arabic script coverage for the main font weights in the Ubuntu Font Family. There are still some issues with these (eg. baseline alignment). Would you be willing to help test them at some point during the next month? This is Arabic ''script'...

The problem is not anti-aliasing - all of your examples show the text is anti-aliased fine. The difference is in an aspect of font rendering called "hinting" - the top Ubuntu Mono example shows a strong hinting, whereas the bottom Ubuntu Mono example shows a smoother hinting. Hinting deforms the letter shapes to better align to the pixel grid and give a ...

This type of problems usually happen when you have invalid permissions on font files. The solution lies in detecting the font file and correcting its permission. Since, Most of the font files reside in /usr/share/fonts, you can apply a generic fix on them. First make root the owner of all files and dirs in /usr/share/fonts/ sudo chown -R root:root /usr/...

To install the Ubuntu Font Family manually using wget use the following single command by copying the entire command and pasting into a Terminal window: wget http://font.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-font-family-0.83.zip && \ sudo mkdir -pv /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ubuntu-font-family && \ sudo unzip -j ubuntu-font-family-0.83.zip 'ubuntu-font-...

If you don't have permissions to the folder, use sudo to elevate your permissions and give you access to the directory where you get permission denied errors. If the [font] files were added in a home directory; I'd just remove them. Please note I'd not try and do it in the difficult-to-read gui, instead logout [of gui] and but switch to terminal (ctrl+alt+...
