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.
