Debian with Ubuntu Fonts

Here is how I configure my Debian system to use the same font config as Ubuntu.
Simply download, fontconfig-config_2.8.0-3ubuntu9_all.deb. The link will take you to Ubuntu 12.04 fontconfig-config deb package.
After you saved that deb file, extract it to get its contents:
$ dpkg-deb -x fontconfig-config_2.8.0-3ubuntu9_all.deb /tmp/extract/

then replace the content of Debian's /etc/fonts/* with data from /tmp/extract/etc/fonts/*

$ sudo cp -r /tmp/extract/etc/fonts/* /etc/fonts/

Logout and log back in to see the change.
