Go to https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-typeface-interest and click “Join this team” (you’ll of course need a Launchpad account). You should receive an email when you have been accepted to this team. When this happens, do not install the deb! Add the PPA so you can stay up to date with the latest versions of the font!
Important: only join this group if you are willing to provide genuine feedback! Also, most people will be accepted into this group. If you have just created a Launchpad account and/or have 0 karma however, it might take a while until you’re accepted.
Upon being accepted, go to https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-font-beta-testing for the instructions. Read them carefully, then go to the PPA and read the instructions again. Don’t just add the PPA – > you’ll have to manually add the private PPA to your sources.list! Also, don’t manually download the Ubuntu font .deb files as you won’t get any updates!
Note: clicking the last link in the post without having gained access (by joining the Kubuntu users team or some other team which has access to the font), you’ll get a “page not found” error.
Thanks goes to Webupd8 for these instructions.
Some people might remember my first ever post. However, most of you may not since my blog as about one reader…thanks to my wife. Anyway, my first post was to profess my love of the program OpenShot Video Editor. Well, my love runs even more deeply now… Why?
THEY’RE USING A THEME I CREATED!!
I’m very excited about this. Mostly because I’m not a programmer by any means, so ever since I’ve been using Ubuntu and Linux in general, I’ve wanted to give back somehow. Thanks to the OpenShot developers, I have!
I created a theme to match the Elementary Icons and theme used in the Gnome Desktop Environment. I submitted it to the OpenShot User Forum and the creator took a liking to it. My theme even made it on to OMG! Ubuntu.
As of OpenShot 1.1 my theme is now an option that can be selected for all users!
