A simple way to delete fonts in Ubuntu 10.4


There seem to be numerous fonts that came packaged with Ubuntu. Many of which I will never use and simply "litter" my system. Is there a simple way to delete these fonts which I don't need?
I have been able to install a few TTFs without any problems. But, purely in the interest of good housekeeping, I would like to delete the fonts which I know I will never use.

remove font package to uninstall fonts.

search all installed font.

My suggestion would be don't bother.

They don't take up much room. I think this falls into "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

You may not anticipate using them, but you may receive documents or go to websites that want them or their equivalents.
