There are many good fonts, but a few are terrible.

In linux, we can force a replacement of a particularly hated font: Comic Sans


sudo vim /etc/fonts/local.conf

In this file, this will do it:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "urn:fontconfig:fonts.dtd">
<match target="pattern">
  <test qual="any" name="family"><string>Comic Sans MS</string></test>
  <edit name="family" mode="assign" binding="same"><string>Ubuntu</string></edit>

What is happening?

As always, the Arch linux wiki has good documentation. What we are doing is matching font family name of “Comic Sans MS” with another: “Ubuntu.” You could change the replacement font, but this one blends well in many debian based system.
