To install another cool console font in Ubuntu, install this package: fonts-ubuntu-font-family-console. These fonts are quite blocky, but they are something different if you wish to try another cool font for your Linux console.

Type sudo apt-get install fonts-ubuntu-font-family-console to install these very lovely fonts.

These are the fonts you get, the BI and RI fonts are italic. They are quite blocky and not as appealing as the Terminus fonts, but a good effort.
