Installing oft Fonts in Ubuntu

I got them (Adobe fonts to be precise) installed this way:
Note: At most step, super user privileges will be needed

  1. If it does not exist, create a directory
        	mkdir /usr/share/fonts/otfonts
  2. Copy all *.otf files to the directory.
  3. Run ttmkfdir while in the directory /usr/share/fonts/
    You may need to install it first using apt-get .
    This should output the file fonts.scale
  4. Run mkfontdir in the same directory to create the file fonts.dir
  5. Run fc-cache to update the font cache.
  6. fc-list | grep -i Font-name
    To make sure the font has been successfully installed.
