to install font in ubuntu is straight forward, we can use gnome-font-viewer (gnome) or kfontinst (kde).

  2. I can type Limon correctly in openoffice.
    If you want to use Alt+Ctrl, Alt+Ctrl+Shift, you need to use keyboard layout( USA International AltGr dead keys).
    Alt(right) = Alt+Ctrl
    Alt(right) + shift = Alt+Ctrl+shift.

    To add keyboard layout go to
