Download and Install the Ubuntu Title Font July 12, 2006Posted by Carthik in snippets, ubuntu.
I found a precious little gem quite by accident when I was using Synaptic (the package installer) today.
The package ttf-ubuntu-title consists of the font used by Ubuntu’s logo, you know, the familiar font used for the letters below:
$sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-title
will install the font and make it available to GIMP, OpenOffice and everywhere else that you can use fonts.
If you only want the font, to install it on another OS or such, you can get it here. The font is an OpenType Font, which installs just like a TrueType font. The font is licensed using the LGPL, for those of you who wish to know.
I must say the font is very nice, easy on the eyes, readable and suitable for titles.
