using tar creating archive recursively

I wanted to quickly make a tar file of a set of directories and copy them to another box.
So..

tar cvf – $(find . ) > out.tar

Now, if you have lsutils

tar cvf – `find `lsd“ > out.tar

the to expand
tar xvf out.tar

Manually installing fonts
On ubuntu-
after putting the new fonts somewhere in /usr/share/fonts/
run this command:
fc-cache -v -f
