Blog - Various Linux Tips

I love Linux! I have used Ubuntu Linux for many years now, and previously I used Linux Mint, Fedora, and other distributions. Sometimes I find a useful Linux hack or command and want to write it down somewhere in case it helps me. I'll post some of them here.


I code a lot, and so I like having good monospaced / fixed-width fonts for doing so. Lately I think I prefer narrow coding fonts because they give me more characters per line that I can see at once. So I did a web dive to find some good narrow coding fonts online. Here are some I liked. I'm currently using M+1M as my main code font in Eclipse, Qt Creator, and other IDEs.

To add fonts in Ubuntu, type the commands below into a terminal:

mkdir ~/.fonts
cp *.ttf ~/.fonts
fc-cache -fv
