Sub_title: simple light weight tcl font viewer
 

Looking around for a font viewer I happened across this small TCL/TK application that worked quite well, I found it Here.

To use it, use the mouse wheel to scroll the fonts and size, to change the sample text open the fontviewer0.3 file located in /usr/bin with a text editor.

Found yet another font viewer, this one is online Here, to use locally just "save page as" you only need the fontBrowser-2-001.swf

To run it just open the fontBrowser-2-001.swf with the default browser or as in my case I use the standalone flashplayer mentioned Here.

Yes another one, this is called fontasia, a python script that is a viewer and categorizes your fonts also.

Read about it Here

GustavoYz,

I just had a look at it, it's a font installer , the view font part of it runs Gfontsel font viewer that is already in puppy.

When I need extra fonts I copy or system link them to /root/.fonts, no need to install them, by placing them there all apps can find them.

Hi Geoffrey.

A nice collection of font viewers you have there. For one or the other of your font viewers I like to create a link from somewhere here. Hope that‘s OK for you.

Cheers Wink

Hi maik.murks,

not a problem, I like your thread, not that I use a lot of different font's, but it's nice to have a choice. Cool

Dear puppians,

As an interim solution, I added a preview kluge to pfont, so you can now preview uninstalled fonts: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=170636768&t=68854.

With kind regards,
