Copy the font files to the ~/.fonts/ directory, (or /usr/share/fonts for system-wide installation).

Where can I download david family fonts? dont ubuntu have some package? – Yosef May 1 '11 at 13:17
    
@Yosef: I only found one "David" font family, which is sold by Linotype (and therefore Ubuntu cannot provide it as a free package). – grawity May 1 '11 at 14:49

I can't help with finding the fonts, but i do believe grawity has missed a step. According to my own notes, from the last time i had trouble installing fonts on ubuntu the two steps i used were

copy the fonts over to /usr/share/fonts/TTF

sudo 'fc-cache'

In my case, the font cache seemed to be rebuilt automatically in a few seconds. Not sure by which component. – grawity May 1 '11 at 23:00
