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:
urw-arial Arial (URW) [installed]
classico Classico (URW) [installed]
dayroman DayRoman (Apostrophiclabs) [installed]
eurofont Euro symbols (Adobe) [installed]
garamond GaramondNo8 (URW) [installed]
lettergothic LetterGothic (URW) [installed]
luximono LuxiMono (Bigelow & Holmes) [installed]
vntex-nonfree VnTeX nonfree (Han The Thanh) [installed]
webomints Webomints (Galapagos Design Group) [installed]
