Font Matrix : Manage Fonts on Ubuntu Linux
By on September 8th, 2009

Installing Fonts on Ubuntu has been covered earlier in the post titled How to install fonts on Ubuntu. But, a font manager along with this would go a step further to a better UI on Ubuntu Linux. A font manager lets us group fonts, tag them and put them under categories else that simply viewing them.

Font Manager

Font Matrix is a cool application with which we can easily manage fonts on a Ubuntu system.

The Font management can be done for the complete system as a root user as well as for individual user accounts. Font Matrix uses the freetype engine to render fonts and the QT framework to provide the frontend for the application which is quite user friendly and well built as is evident from the screenshot.

Another great feature of Font Matrix is labeling of fonts, and tagging them which makes it a font manager and not just a simple font viewer.

With no built in application for managing, labeling and tagging fonts in Ubuntu, font manager equals it’s windows counterparts to a good extent and is a must have application for Ubuntu Linux.
