Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Font Manager is an open-source application for managing fonts. Via a simple and intuitive interface, it allows the users to easily install new fonts or remove some of the installed fonts.
The latest version available is Font Manager 0.7 (an alpha version), which has been recently released, coming with an interface ported to GTK+3 and Vala, having support for the most popular desktop enviroments: Unity, Gnome Shell, Cinnamon, Pantheon, etc.
Despite the fact that the porting process has not been done completely, the application is already usable.
In this article I will show you how to install Font Manager 0.7 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, LXLE 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Peppermint Five, Linux Lite 2.0, Deepin and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Font Manager 0.7 on Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the font-manager package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:font-manager/staging
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install font-manager
Optional, to remove font-manager, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove font-manager
