Install & Manage Fonts under GNOME desktop - Font Manager

Font Manager is not intended to be a professional-grade font management solution, but rather a simple application suitable for the needs of most desktop users.

Although designed with the GNOME desktop environment in mind, it should work well with most major desktop environments such as Xfce, Enlightenment, and even KDE.

Font Manager currently allows the user to:
 * Preview installed fonts
 * Compare installed fonts
 * Easily install or remove fonts
 * Easily activate and deactivate installed fonts
 * Specify different directories to search for fonts
 * Group fonts into "Collections", and easily activate or deactivate groups of fonts
 * Export "Collections" to an archive for easy backup, sharing, etc.
 * Provides quick access to all GNOME font utilities.

Font Manager Installation:
Font Manager package is available in the default available repository under Ubuntu, you can search "font-manager" and install it using Software Center or can install it using command:
sudo apt-get install font-manager
After successful installation, you can open the font manager application from Unity 'Dash'

Using this simple UI application you can install the font by clicking on the "Gear icon" at the bottom of the left panel which will open up the standard file select browser, were you can use to find multiple fonts for installation.
