       fontypython - Find, view and manage font files of all kinds.


       fontypython [OPTIONS]... [VIEW]... [TARGET]...


       Fontypython  is  a  GUI  utility written in Python and WxPython that will help you do font
       stuff on GNU/Linux system.  You can quickly view and filter arbitrary* TTF, TTC, OTF, OTC,
       WOFF  or Type1 font files and then gather them together into 'Pogs' which can be installed
       or removed as needed. In this way you control which fonts are installed on  a  per-project
       basis.  Fonty also includes a new "Hush" mechanism for stilling the noise of system fonts.
       Use this when you want to work with only the fonts that you wish to see.

       If you have gucharmap or kfontview installed, (there is an option in  Settings  to  choose
       which one) you can view any font's character maps etc.

       *Arbitrary  means you can see and/or use any fonts in a local directory (or a mount). They
       do not need to be installed on your system.


        VIEW  A place where fonts are. A Pog or a folder someplace. Also called a "source."

              A "Pog". A place to keep those fonts (just references to them).


       Below are some of the main command-line options. See help for all of them. You don't  need
       to  use  them,  but  they  are  handy.  The  program  will run as a GUI if you only invoke

       -h, --help
              Show help message and exit.

       -h b, --help b
              Shows the basic help information.

       -h e, --help e
              Shows some %$@#$ examples!

       -h hush, --help hush
              Shows the basic help about hushing system fonts.

       -l, --list
              List the names of all the Pogs.

       -i Pog, --install=Pog
              Install the fonts in this Pog to your fonts folder.

       -u Pog, --uninstall=Pog
              Uninstall the fonts in this Pog.

       -p Pog, --purge=Pog
              Purge the Pog of font files that are no longer really there.

       -c folder --check=folder
              Check for bad fonts that crash the program. It will  recurse  through  sub-folders.
              This  will build a file named "segfonts" in your fontypython directory. After using
              this tool, you should be able to browse  safely.  (The  reason  it's  not  done  by
              default  is  that  it's  very  slow).   NOTE:  The fonts that crash the program are
              probably still perfectly good and can be used in other apps.

       -a folder Pog, --all=folder Pog
              Puts all fonts in this folder into the Pog. If the Pog already exists, it will  add
              only *new* fonts, this means fonts are not repeated in that Pog.

       -A folder Pog, --all-recurse=folder Pog
              Puts all fonts in this folder and *all* sub-folders into the Pog. Rest same as -a.

       -z Pog, --zip=Pog
              All  the  fonts  inside Pog will be zipped and the zip file will be named after the
              Pog. The file will be placed in the current directory.

              Show program's version number and exit.
