How do I install and use fonts in Linux?  By Jack Wallen

We can Easily Download and install google web fonts with TypeCatcher
TypeCatcher is an application that allows to easily browse, search, download and install fonts from the Google Web Fonts collection, which includes hundreds of open source fonts.

The application is pretty simple but it's also very useful since Google doesn't have a direct download link on its Fonts page: clicking the download link offers to "Sync Google fonts to your desktop using SkyFonts", an application somewhat similar to TypeCatcher but which is only available for Windows and Mac (update: another way of downloading some fonts is to add them to your "collection" and then download your whole collection from Google Fonts).
