font-manager - Simple font management for GTK+ desktop environments


font-manager [-a] [-v] [-l] [--list-full] [-e family] [-d family] [-i filepath] [-u]


font-manager is intended to provide a way for average users to easily manage desktop fonts, without having to resort to command line tools or editing configuration files by hand. While designed primarily with the Gnome Desktop Environment in mind, it should work well with other Gtk+ desktop environments.

font-manager is a user level application, it will not allow installation to, or removal of fonts from, anywhere other than the default user font directory. However, the application does allow users to disable system fonts and also makes it easy to add font directories.
