Linux type manager


Greetings

I wonder if someone knows of any equivalent to windows software "Adobe type manager" or "Bitstream Font Navigator" for Linux?

I'm looking for a software that can manage, that is, to quickly navigate through a font collection, browsing them without installing and installing and uninstalling fonts from it.

If someone knows one or more I'd apreaciate if you could post some info about it.

Thanks

You can use xfonsel to see what fonts are installed.Both gnome and kde have font managers.

Hi and thanks for the reply

I'm using KDE 3.3.0, and its font manager doesn't suits my needs. What I want to know is if there is a software that allows you to browse your fonts like you were using a file manager. You have the list of your fonts library and you scroll through them at the same time you are already viewing a text sample using the font hilighted, like you can do in the software I mentioned above.

I searched for xfontsel and it seemed like a command line utility and is not what I pretended to use.

Thanks

Try xfonsel,just type that command and a new window will pop up and you can browse your fonts that are installed.There are some other ones but xfontsel works fine.It will show you a preview of the fonts.Just navigate with your mouse.
