The simplest way to install fonts:

1. Get the font files onto your computer.

2. If it doesn't already exist, create a font directory in your home directory:

$ [ -e ~/.fonts ] || mkdir ~/.fonts

3. Put the font files in the ~/.fonts directory.

4. Run a program that needs the fonts. Check that the fonts are now available. If they are not available, try restarting a running program or logging out and in again.

There are many complicated ways to install fonts, but this is by far the simplest. In exchange, other users of your computer won't have access to the new fonts. If there are no other users, then no problem.
