Changing fonts.

Allot of people change their gtk themes, icon themes and background but not that many people change their system fonts.

Neither did I, untill I read a post on a forum suggesting to do so.

It makes a difference, a big one!

In ubuntu, you can add fonts by opening a terminal (applications -> accessories) and typing

sudo nautilus

Then navigate to “fonts:///” and add your fonts there. (press the button under the back button to be able to type text).

You can find allot of fonts on http://www.dafont.com.

There are some Microsoft fonts in the ‘ubuntu-restricted-extra’ package.

To change the fonts on your ubuntu PC, navigate to “system -> preferences -> appearences” and press the “fonts” tab. From there on out you should be able to figure things out yourself.

note: the font on the second screen shot is called “comic sans ms”
