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 basis. 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. TARGET A "Pog". A place to keep those fonts (just references to them). OPTIONS 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. --version Show program's version number and exit. -h, --help Show help message and exit.
