In Linux, I use a drawing software called Inkscape to draw some math illustrations. I want to be able to use the same Latex math fonts in the drawings, in particular the \mathbb and \mathcal fonts, but I cannot locate them inside the Linux (Ubunut) directories.

Is there a way to share those fonts with other system programs?

Oh, I found a great solution (for Inkscape only):

There is a function under:

Extensions --> Render --> Latex.

You can download the Latin Modern family of fonts in OpenType format from the GUST e-foundry (the font foundry of the Polish TeX user group). You can then place them in your system font directory or wherever the program you're using expects them. If the program supports it (MS Word does) you can also download the Latin Modern Math font which can be used to render formulas.
