Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, TypeCatcher is an open-source tool that allows the users to download the Google fonts for offline usage. It has more than 600 fonts available in its databases, including very popular fonts like Cantarell (Gnome), Oxygen (KDE) or Roboto (Android). The latest version available is TypeCatcher 0.2, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install TypeCatcher 0.2 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04 and Elementary OS 0.3 Isis.
Because it is available via PPA, installing TypeCatcher 0.2 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the typecatcher package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrewsomething/typecatcher
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install typecatcher
Optional, to remove typecatcher, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove typecatcher
Or, if you want to uninstall typecatcher, disable the recently added PPA and downgrade all the packages that got updated via the PPA, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:andrewsomething/typecatcher
