Thanks!

P.S. I suggest changing this:

cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype/

#TODO: put validation if folder already exists
sudo mkdir ttf-monaco

cd ttf-monaco/

To this:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-monaco
cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-monaco

Great work! Thank you very much. The script is still working on Ubuntu 18

The entire script could be written in one line like this!

sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-monaco && \
sudo wget http://www.gringod.com/wp-upload/software/Fonts/Monaco_Linux.ttf -O - > \
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-monaco/Monaco_Linux.ttf && \
sudo fc-cache

Thank you! It shouldn't matter but I've really missed this font. It is working on Fedora 29, just had to make a directory for truetype.

I totally forgot about this gist and I didn't know it was so popular!
Amazing!
@SlavDimov sorry I didn't see your suggestion.

@nullvideo thanks for the one-line script, I applied your suggestion.

There is an issue with this Monaco_Linux.ttf file.. On Ubuntu, in some applications (VSCode the editor, Chrome the browser), the font is pixelated when font size is 14 (other sizes like 14.5 is fine), and in others (Tilix the terminal emulator) the font is fine.

One proposed solution is disabling the embedded bit map: https://askubuntu.com/questions/386056/monaco-is-pixelated-in-web-pages, but it doesn't work for me.

I finally solved the issue by downloading the Monaco.ttf file from this source: https://www.fontpalace.com/font-download/monaco/ (note: I'm not sure if it's safe, though). Then, move thie file to /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-monaco/ as suggested by the author here, then run sudo fc-cache -f -v . in that directory to make the font effective. You may need to restart the applications to see the change.
