System fonts
System fonts are installed for all users. Anyone with an account on the machine will be able to use these fonts.
Create a new directory `/usr/share/fonts/<font-family-name>/` for the new font family
`sudo mkdir /usr/share/fonts/robofont`
Copy font files (e.g. `.ttf` files) to the new directory
`sudo cp ~/Downloads/robofont.ttf /usr/share/fonts/robofont`

`sudo fc-cache -v`
