This tutorial explains how to install Zekr on 18.04 and configure a good font for it. You will need to download the Zekr program itself, install Java on your system then, and finally install Zekr correctly. And, I suggest you here to use Amiri Quran font with Zekr because I find it's the best for now. Don't worry, although Zekr is not present anymore in the Bionic repository, we still can install it manually by these instructions. Have a good reading!

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS "Bionic Beaver" has been released at Thursday, 26 April 2018 by announcements in their mailing list and Release Notes. After installing Bionic on my laptop since the Beta 1 and Beta 2, here's my report: it uses around 1.2GiB of RAM at least; it brings LibreOffice 6, Firefox 59, and GNOME 3.28 by default; still using Ubiquity as graphical installer. The biggest difference to previous LTS is it no longer uses Unity 7 desktop, so no HUD, no global menu anymore. It is powerful and still very easy to use like before, but needs more powerful hardware. The rest of this review explains those for you with additional links if you want to learn further. Enjoy!

You can install Unity 7 desktop on Ubuntu 18.04 without removing GNOME. Unity 7 is the default desktop you found at Ubuntu 16.04 LTS backwards to 11.04. The installation needs only around 50MB of data in less than 5 minutes. After installing, you will see a new option named "Unity" on your login screen under the Gear Icon.
