Font Manager is a font management application for the GNOME desktop. It is not intended to be a professional-grade font management solution, but rather a simple application suitable for the needs of most desktop users and even some graphics designers who may need to manage just a few thousand font files. Although designed with the GNOME desktop environment in mind, it should work well with most major desktop environments such as XFCE, Enlightenment, and KDE.

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 the users font folder, GNOME font settings, Character Map, etc.

Install font manager in Ubuntu

First you need to download .deb package from here or run the following command from your terminal

wget http://font-manager.googlecode.com/files/font-manager_0.4.4-1_all.deb

Now you need to install .deb package by double clicking or run the the following command from your terminal

sudo dpkg -i font-manager_0.4.4-1_all.deb

    Nice program. One small remark: would be nice if in the font display, the default display would be ‘Regular’ or ‘Standard’, instead of (alphabetical ordered?) ‘Bold’ etc. Many fonts don’t look very nice when rendered Bold by default, makes quick scan and selection more difficult. Apart from that, thanks for the program!

    Hiya – hey if I activate a ‘collection’ does that only fonts in that collection should appear in say Inkscape?

    I am looking for a way to restrict what fonts Inkscape sees depending on what I am working on.

    Cheers !
