Install IBM Plex Font
Copy, paste, and execute the following script to download and install the IBM Plex font (tested for Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop):
#!/bin/bash cd /tmp # install unzip just in case the user doesn't already have it. sudo apt-get install unzip -y wget "https://github.com/IBM/type/archive/master.zip" unzip master.zip rm master.zip cd type-master sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ibm-plex sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/opentype/ibm-plex sudo cp /tmp/type-master/fonts/*/desktop/pc/*.ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ibm-plex/. sudo cp /tmp/type-master/fonts/*/desktop/mac/*.otf /usr/share/fonts/opentype/ibm-plex/. sudo fc-cache -fv
So you can see what it is like in action, below is a screenshot of the script above, written in gedit, using one of the variations of the font. I find it quite pleasing to write scripts with.
