How to install inconsolata font on Ubuntu

Sep 1 2015

This is a simple one-liner. Open a terminal and install the font as follows:

sudo apt-get install fonts-inconsolata

With the font installed, you can now set your terminal’s font by clicking Edit->Profiles in the terminal menu and then selecting the profile from the windown that pops up and clicking the Edit button. Changing the terminal font should also change your vim font.
