A nice-looking font for Ubuntu

I have been looking for a nice font to use as the standard 'application font' in Ubuntu for quite a long time, and finally I found a great one, thanks to this blog.

I only tried the first font-family the author suggests, called Gentium, and since this looks great on my screen (much better than the default Serif/SansSerif fonts I had been using till now), I didn't look any further. One very positive feature of the Gentium fonts for me was the support for Greek characters.

The font can be installed with the command:

sudo aptitude install ttf-gentium
