Monaco for Ubuntu

Trying to copy the 'All Hallows Eve' textmate theme in kate, I got stuck with the Monaco font. After a little searching, I found a nice blog post which includes an instruction for adding the Monaco font to the system.

Basically, get the font and run the following code to put it in the fonts directory:
sudo mkdir /usr/share/fonts/truetype/custom
sudo mv Monaco_Linux.ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/custom/
sudo fc-cache -f -v

Awesome, thanks for the tips. How we don't have good fonts in linux still is amazing...

Now you can use
gnome-font-viewer Monaco_Linux.ttf
to preview and optionally install the font in one command.

Also it is very important to say that installing the font into system folders is bad practice..

Fonts have to be installed into the users font folder if you want to do it the right way :)

/home/YOUR-USERNAME/.fonts

is the right way to go.

It is also the directory where gnome-font-viewer and every other font-viewer will put it if you start it without sudo.

Why not just open it in Font Viewer, and it will allow you to install it, instead of all this messing around.
