I am really fond of the fonts used in elementary OS. Is there a way to download them to use in Ubuntu?

The good news is, you may find that many of the fonts used in elementary OS are already in Ubuntu! They are:

Alternative, you can install the elementary-fonts package from the elementary OS Stable PPA.


Fonts can be downloaded and installed manually:

  1. Download fonts from the elementary/fonts repository at GitHub. Navigate into the folders of the desired fonts.
  2. Save the *.ttf files into ~/.fonts (you might have to make hidden files and directories visible using the shortcut Ctrl+h).
  3. Open terminal and type sudo fc-cache -f -v to rebuild font cache
