Font of the Week(end): Ubuntu Mono

Last week, I covered a monospace font that’s great for print: Inconsolata. This week, it’s time for a good on-screen monospace font, and that comes from one of my favourite font families, Ubuntu.

Samples

ubuntu-mono

Inside a terminal:

ubuntu-mono-term

Usage

At size 12, Ubuntu Mono is well-suited for terminal windows, although the bold variant can look ugly at times. For printing, this doesn’t beat Inconsolata.

Download

Google Fonts has almost every open source font on the planet and this is no exception. Get it.


That’s it for now. See you next week.
