IMO what Puppy really needs is a way to preview a font file that isn't installed... you don't by any chance know how to do that?

Does it install whole folder of fonts ? That ability would be helpful.

I think you can just copy them all into /root/,fonts and restart X.

What you mean with 'not-installed'? I'm not sure of understand it...
If you have some fonts already downloaded, why don't you try to symlink them for tested?
This app can do the 'test-job', without the need of install nothing (on just 1 Kb Cool)... Do the try, it works... If you dont like the font, just un-symlink it.
See the attached cap on where no font was installed... Cool

Just for curiosity, i made this little script:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
cp -s "$@" /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF
exec pfont

I save it to my-applications as "TTF.sh".
Right click on a TTF font and 'set a run action' and drag the script 'TTF.sh' into the box.
It works great, and could help to test non-installed fonts just by double clicking on them.
But, its just a way of TEST...

Regards.

Thank you zigbert.

I've just used your little utility to add an Arial Unicode MS font to my puppy installation. I'm ready for everything now.

Hello,
Like many users, I appreciate zigbert productions.
Currently, I know he is busy with many projects.
I discovered yesterday the application "pfont", I took the opportunity to update it: gettext + interface.
So I propose pfont-0.2
Cordialement,
