No config file found, creating it with defaults. fontypython [OPTIONS] [VIEW] [TARGET] VIEW : A place where fonts are. (A Pog or a Folder.) TARGET : A "Pog". A place to keep those fonts. ("fontypython" on it's own will start the GUI.) NB: Try not to use spaces in Pog names. If you must, then "quote the name." Please use -e to see more info. NEWS : We now support TTF, OTF, Type1 (PFB, PFA) and TTC fonts. Fonty Python version 0.4.6 The basic idea: =============== Many designers have collections of font files in big directory structures or on other media. Fonty Python will let you gather your fonts and structure them into collections -- or what I call "Pogs" -- a place to keep tyPOGraphy. Well, why not? Your fonts never move from where they are (so don't worry). All that happens is that you select fonts visually and place their names into a Pog, then you install or uninstall Pogs as you need them. No copies of your fonts are made, only links to the original files are used to install the fonts. For example, you might have a Pog called 'logos' into which you place all the fonts you have of company logos. After that, when you need to work with those logos, you simply install the 'logos' Pog and start your design app! FP is also great for just looking at fonts wherever they are on your computer, without having to install them system-wide. Manage your fonts on Gnu/Linux! =============================== Fonty Python Copyright (C) 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2016 Donn.C.Ingle This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Don't overdo this. -p Pog --purge=Pog Purge the Pog of font files that are no longer really there. -c folder --check=folder Check for bad fonts that crash Fonty. It will recurse through sub-folders. This will build a file: ~/.fontypython/segfonts After using this tool you should be able to browse folders that crashed Fonty. (The reason it's not done by default is that it's very slow.) * NOTE: The fonts that crash Fonty are probably still perfectly good and can be used in other apps. It's simply a bug in the library we use to access fonts that chokes things. This will (hopefully) improve in the future. -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.
