This is more of a site question, but what font is this site using? I'd like to make it my desktop font too, it's rather interesting and looks nice.


Looking at the CSS files for the site, it appears that the preferred font is the Ubuntu font, which you should find on your machine in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ubuntu-font-family


To use the font on your site, you would have to convert it to a Web Font, as the developers of AU did. Here's a snippet of their CSS:

@font-face {
    font-family: 'Ubuntu';
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: 300;
    src: url('img/ubuntu-L-webfont.eot');
    src: local('Ubuntu Light'), local('Ubuntu-Light'), url('img/ubuntu-L-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), url('img/ubuntu-L-webfont.woff') format('woff'), url('img/ubuntu-L-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'), url('img/ubuntu-L-webfont.svg#UbuntuLight') format('svg');

@font-face {
    font-family: 'UbuntuRegular';
    src: url('img/ubuntu-R-webfont.eot');
    src: url('img/ubuntu-R-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), url('img/ubuntu-R-webfont.woff') format('woff'), url('img/ubuntu-R-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'), url('img/ubuntu-R-webfont.svg#UbuntuRegular') format('svg');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;

You would have to do your own searching for converting to Web Fonts - not something that I have done.

  • Thanks! Do you know how I can add this to my site's CSS? Right now my CSS I put as: font-family: "times new roman", times, roman, serif; Dec 28 '13 at 18:51
  • this would be better fitted in stackoverflow...
