Ubuntu ttf fonts, all at once.

Ever wanted to install every ttf font in the Ubuntu repositories at once?   I have the command for you.

I was using inkscape, and annoyed with the meagre list of fonts available, so I assembled this with a quick regex and a few manual corrections.  It’s about 300 packages, takes up nearly 900Mb of space, and is a 335Mb download. (Good compression on fonts, apparently!)

(Edit: you may wish to skip ttf-mathematica4.1 and  ttf-mscorefonts-installer, as they require you to agree to licences.  I’ve put them at the end for easier deletion.)

  1. Aren’t a lot of these fonts non latin ?
    If yes, wouldn’t it make sense to keep them separate, as most people are only fluent in latin script, and sometimes another one.

    • I’m still working my way through them, after installing them this morning. Most of them seem to be latin, although I am planning on doing a revised list, once I figure out which fonts are either redundant or simply non-latin.
