Where are the fonts located in Ubuntu and other Ubuntu based distributions

Fonts are located in the following directory /usr/share/fonts

If you wish to install new fonts in your Linux distribution this need to be done as root, so you need to enter the following command in the terminal. Remember to replace font_name with font you want to copy over.

sudo cp font_name.ttf /usr/share/fonts


After this you need to rebuild your font cache. To do this enter the following in the terminal
sudo fc-cache -f -v
