There are lots of ways to install fonts, and the "right" method depends on
the font in question.

To get URW classico:

1. Open a terminal (remember, in Linux, the command line is your friend --
evan if something can be done with a GUI, often it's easier, and certainly
easier to describe, to do it from the command line).

2. In the window type "getnonfreefonts -a"

That should do it.

If you get a message saying that the system doesn't understand the command,
then you need to install the ubuntu package "texlive-base-bin". But most
likely you have that installed already, so you shouldn't see an error.


PS This command will install:
