Installing more Arabic fonts on Kubuntu

I was designing a logo for my Arabic website, I checked the fonts and I couldn’t find good font, I searched around and I found that I can search repositories for fonts like this:

#sudo apt-cache search ttf | grep “Arabic”

and I got:

ttf-arabeyes – Arabeyes GPL TrueType Arabic fonts
ttf-kacst – KACST free TrueType Arabic fonts
ttf-kacst-one – TrueType font designed for Arabic language
ttf-sil-scheherazade – smart Unicode font for Arabic

and installed them:

#sudo apt-get install ttf-arabeyes ttf-kacst ttf-kacst-one ttf-sil-scheherazade

And now I can start designing my logo with GIMP with these great fonts!
