Add fonts to GIMP on Linux Ubuntu

Linux is a fully functioning free operating system that you can download online. Just because you are using Linux Ubuntu doesn't mean your projects have to suffer or look less professional that those made on traditional operating systems like Windows or Mac OS X. In this tutorial, learn how to download and add fonts to the GIMP photo program on a Linux Ubuntu system.
GIMP is essentially the same program as Photoshop, but is free to download and can be used with any operating system. Instead of requiring a CD-ROM, you can download GIMP on the Internet and start using it right away.

This video clip will show you how to download a new font package and make your GIMP image projects look polished and unique. By not having a boring, everyday font on your logo, you will look more professional.
