"Another factor that has contributed to Linux becoming more font
friendly is improvements made in font management and editing
software. Font management software lets users browse and preview
fonts, to organise them by groups, to activate and deactivate
fonts, make comparisons between fonts, find fonts suitable for a
specific purpose, as well as generating font samples and font
books. Many distributions have hundreds of fonts pre-installed.
This type of software makes it simple to manage and evaluate these
fonts. In this article, we have highlighted the best font
management software available for Linux, as well as identifying our
favorite font editor.
"To provide an insight into the software that is available, we
have compiled a list of 5 of our favorite font software. Hopefully,
there will be something of interest here for users who want to
mange the fonts on their computer. We give our highest
recommendation to Fontmatrix and FontForge."
