Installing Ubuntu Fonts in openSUSE 11.4

Although I do not use Ubuntu and its derivatives extensively in my daily computing, the short sojourn I had with Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) impressed upon me the Ubuntu font.

While openSUSE 11.4 has a large amount of font types to choose from, I still find that the Ubuntu font is pretty awesome; I especially like it on my HP Mini 2140 netbook running openSUSE 11.4.

To install the Ubuntu font type on openSUSE 11.4 :
  1. Download the latest Ubuntu font type from
  2. Unzip the zip archive - unzip
  3. Move the unzipped directory to /usr/share/fonts - mv ubuntu-font-family-0.71.2/ /usr/share/fonts
  4. Run SuSEconfig and you are good to go.

Note that the font archive version may differ from the above example.

How bout the fonts used in the Smeego?
I assume, fonts used in Smeego are small and nice as well.

Haven't tried Smeegol. Cannot comment on that. I also like the Droid fonts from Google's Android project.
