       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  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

       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.

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

              Below  are  the  various command-line options. You don't need to use them, but they
              are handy. The program will run as a GUI if you only invoke 'fontypython'.

       -e, --examples
              Show some %$@#$ examples!

       -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.

       -s num, --size=num
              Set a new default point size.

       -n num, --number=num
              Set a new default for how many fonts to view at one go. Don't overdo this.

       -c folder --check=folder
              Check for bad fonts that crash the program. It will  recurse  through  sub-folders.
              This will build a file: ~/.fontypython/segfonts 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 zipfile will be named after the
              Pog. The file will be placed in the current directory.

              Show program's version number and exit.

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