       fontmatrix - a powerful open source font manager


       fontmatrix [-h|--help]


       Fontmatrix  is  an open source font manager originally developed on Linux, but now runs on
       OSX as well.

       This man page only provides summaries of some aspects of  the  program's  use.  It's  main
       purpose is to make sure you can find the full documentation quickly and easily.


       The  definitive  options  are  in the program's usage statement. Run: fontmatrix --help to
       view the usage statement.

       -l, --lang xx
              Overrides the system locale and runs Fontmatrix in language  xx.  The  language  is
              specified  with  the same POSIX language codes that are used in the LANG and LC_ALL
              environment variables. For example, English can  be  selected  with  'en'  (generic
              English),  'en_GB'  (British  English), 'en_US' (American english), etc. Similarly,
              Deutsch can be selected with 'de' or 'de_DE'.

              -la, --langs-available
              Print a list of languages for which user interface translations are  available.  To
              use  that  language  run  Fontmatrix  as  'fontmatrix  -l xx' where xx is the short
              language code, or set the locale environment variables as described below.

       -v, --version
              Prints the Fontmatrix version number and exits.

       -f, --file
              Open the specified file.  It's  possible  to  simply  pass  the  file  name  as  an
              unqualified  argument instead of using this, though if the name begins with a - you
              will need to use --, eg 'fontmatrix -- -myfile.sla'.

       -h, --help
              Print a brief usage summary.

       -ns, --no-splash
              Suppresses display of the splash screen during SCribus start-up.


       Fontmatrix respects the standard locale environment variables. Others may be used  through
       underlying libraries, such as Qt, or by programs used by Fontmatrix.  LC_ALL, LC_MESSAGES,
       LANG POSIX locale. See locale(1).  Fontmatrix uses these three environment  variables,  in
       the  listed  order  of  precedence,  to  select the language (including the user interface
       translation) to use. If none are set,  it  will  fall  back  on  the  locale  set  by  the
       underlying Qt library.

       PATH   Fontmatrix  may search the PATH for external tools if their paths are not specified
              absolutely. This is currently most likely to affect you if you have multiple copies
              of fontforge(1) installed. You can set an absolute path to the correct fontforge(1)
              in your Fontmatrix preferences and bypass the PATH search.

       A few important  environment  variables  from  other  programs  are  summarised  here  for
       convenience,  though  you  should  check  the  original program's documentation if you are
       having trouble.


              User preferences are stored in $HOME/.fontmatrix/ on  Unix  or  Linux.  Most  other
              paths are configurable from the Fontmatrix preferences.  $HOME/.fonts/


              Fontconfig,  the library used by Fontmatrix to locate fonts, is normally configured
              with files in /etc/fonts, mainly /etc/fonts/fonts.conf and /etc/fonts/local.conf  .
              It  may  also  use a config file $HOME/.fonts.conf and fonts in $HOME/.fonts/ . See
              fonts.conf(5) and the fontconfig documentation  for  more  information.  Note  that
              Fontmatrix  may  also  use  its  internal  font path to locate more fonts - see the
              Preferences dialog and fontmatrix help.
