Last night I read a post by Christer Edwards about installing the free Liberation fonts from Red Hat. I remember reading about and installing these fonts when they were first released. I also remember thinking that they do make good free alternatives to some of the more popular commercial fonts [Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New etc.]
I was surprised when reading Christer's instructions that there wasn't a package available to easily install these fonts. With that in mind I made one and uploaded it to my PPA on Launchpad.
