As much as I like the Ubuntu font, sometimes applying a new font to your Linux distribution can change the complete look and feel of your desktop.
One font I recently discovered and installed on Ubuntu Mate was the Fira sans font. The Fira sans font family was created by the Mozilla in 2015 and is free to download and use.
You can download the fonts from Google fonts by visiting https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Fira+Sans?preview.text_type=custom
Once downloaded extract the .zip file then use the following command to copy the Fira_Sans folder to the fonts directory.
Fonts can be found in the following directory /usr/share/fonts/truetype
