font management application for the GNOME desktop
  20 reviews

Font Manager currently allows the user to:
- Preview installed fonts
- Compare installed fonts
- Easily install or remove fonts
- Easily activate and de-activate installed fonts
- Specify different directories to search for fonts
- Group fonts into "Collections", and easily activate or
de-activate groups of fonts
- Export "Collections" to an archive for easy backup, sharing, etc.
- Provides quick access to all GNOME font utilities.
Font Manager suggests the installation of python-reportlab to allow users to export font collections in the PDF format.

This is the best I can find to manage the fonts, but I dont like it. When it refresh its data (searching the font installed on the PC), the PC works hardly. Some years ago, I use The Font Thing (Fisher) on Windows. This program was easily to navigate, install, create collections, export, the fonts.

Using Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon Edition and it works great ! You can install a lot of fonts at the same time and it ignores the allready installed ones.4 of 5 stars becouse the waterfall from the Font manager doesn't work.

Works great. Made it easy to install fonts from a VERY old font cd.

One of the first programs I get upon a fresh install! Definitely essential if you're a font collector :)

It could be better. The terminology is terrible. I thought System was referring to either the default fonts that came with the OS or fonts required by the System. It would be useful to know what I can copy but not remove. I still don’t understand what the list in the main window is actually showing me. In order to see what fonts are actually installed, I have to go to Remove which is the only place that shows that. All in all this is a very useful utility, but with unrealized potential.

A must have, if you use your computer in a serious way.

A better font previewer than the default but convoluted, obtuse, and poorly documented. And fonts installed through it do not show up in all other applications like those installed through FontMatrix.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Compared to this (or just about anything I could imagine) Fontmatrix has ten-times as many downloads but to myself it is the clunkiest piece for simply viewing fonts (plus it leaves ugly blank-spots in the program after you remove a font—forever). Font Manageris the ticket! Has three font categories: All, System and User fonts, and custom "text entry".

v0.5.7-4 doesn't work very well w/ Nadia: enable/disable feature has no effect and its deprecated ~/.fonts folder causes nemo to issue a warning message by slowing down the start of the latter so that nautilus shows up instead.
