linux default iconFonty Python for Linux Publisher's description

Allows you to manage your fonts on Gnu/Linux

Fonty Python project allows you to manage your fonts on Gnu/Linux.

As a designer, I missed the ability to view and keep lists of fonts in easy-to-use collections.

With this program you can assign/remove fonts to/from a 'pog' (from the word typography) and then install the pog. All the fonts within it will be linked within your $HOME/.fonts directory. When you are done using them (in other applications), you can simply remove the pog, and all the links will be removed too.

It's great for keeping your fonts organized on a per client/project/job basis. It also keeps "font clutter" in your font choosers down to a minimum.

It is written as a mixed command-line/gui application at the moment, allowing very quick use. You can install/remove pogs without having to start the entire gui, which is neat.

FP is now on 0.2.0 and has a full user interface. None of the command-line goodness has been lost though.

Please let me know what you think of Fonty Python, and help me fix bugs and improve the app.

How to install:

Please see the end of this file if your install fails, there are certain files that FP relies upon.

I assume you have extracted the "tarball" already. Change to the directory it creates.

As the root user enter this command:

python setup.py install

If you are on Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu/etc:

sudo python setup.py install

This will create a program called 'fp'

Alternative installation:

Move the entire extracted folder to a folder that
is in your PATH, like ~/bin

Make a link to the fp script like this: (for e.g.)

tar -s ~/bin/fontypython-x.x.x/fp .

Make it executable:

chmod u+x fp

Now you should be good to go.

If it does not work, try closing your console and
starting it again.

Running the program:

To get started:

fp -h
