One of my favorite fonts is Monaco. However, it doesn't come bundled with with any linux distros by default (at least not to my knowledge). Here's how I installed it on Ubuntu 13 via command line.

$ cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype/
$ sudo mkdir ttf-monaco
$ cd ttf-monaco/
$ sudo wget http://codybonney.com/files/fonts/Monaco_Linux.ttf
$ sudo mkfontdir
$ cd ..
$ fc-cache
