1- System->Preferences->Font

2- Click 'Details'

3- Click 'Go to font folder'

4- Drag-and-drop the font file to the folder

A quicker way is to just open the fonts:/// location in nautilus

I do think that the first way is a little harder to discover than it should be.

(This is more on-topic for the users list btw.)
