Installing fonts in Ubuntu

Something I always forget how-to-do is installing fonts, so I thought I’d put this short entry together… its actually pretty simple if you want them just for one user. You can either do this graphically or as I prefer at the command line:
Simply make a directory called “.fonts” in your home directory:
mkdir .fonts
and then drag and drop to install fonts graphically or simply
cp font.ttf $HOME/.fonts/
Then open the program you want to use them in, job done.
