gfontview is an outline font viewer for Linux. See the screenshot.<br /><br />The personal itch (The cathedral and the bazaar) it tries to solve is that I could not find any font displaying program to see my fonts and then be able to install them.<br /><br />So, what am I doing? Well, I want to be able to view uninstalled fonts. So I started with the program, left alone all installation issues (handled best by other programs), and tried to optimize it as a font displayer. It should handle Type 1 and True Type fonts, give some useful information about them and print several types of samples. <br /><br />Features<br /><br />The present features of the program are:<br /><br /> It displays a list with the PostScript Type 1 and TrueType fonts found in a directory. For the selected font in the list, it does a preview in the main window.<br /> It can display information about the selected font.<br /> It allows you to display a particular character or a string in a separate window, so that you can have several such windows for several fonts and directly compare them.<br /> It can save the displayed character, string or font table in GIF format.<br /> It can save a TrueType font as Type 42 PostScript font.<br /> It allows you to display all characters of the font (in several encodings for PostScript fonts) in a window. All the glyphs in the window can be further magnified by clicking on them (magnification factor according to the mouse key pressed).<br /> It can print a font sample by generating PostScript code with a sample of the font at different sizes. You can send this output to any PostScript printer or to ghostscript.<br /> In the case of TrueType fonts, they are downloaded as Type42 fonts. The font can be subsetted to include only the needed glyphs, feature important for big fonts.<br /> It can print a longer text in the selected font; this way you can see how a text typeset in the font would look like, even without installing the font.<br /> It can print all glyphs in the font together with size information.<br /> It can print a font catalog, with one font per line and a configurable text.<br /> It can save a file with the file name and font name of all fonts in the directory.
