Use Ubuntu font in Lucid

The all new Ubuntu Font
There is a new font for Ubuntu called 'Ubuntu' from the release versions of 10.10 to onwards.

But if you do not want to upgrade your system like me, then you can use the all new Ubuntu font in your current distribution. I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx), so I write this based upon Lucid.

Now, lets start! First add the repository for Ubuntu true type fonts and then simply download font package. Here is the command to write in terminal :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/ubuntu-font-family
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-font-family

It is time to change your font. Go to System>Preferences>Appearance Settings and modify the Font tab shown bellow:
