    Graphic fonts


    Hi all,

    Ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64bit

    I expect installing some fonts for graphic editing.

    $ apt-cache search fonts | grep ttf
    found me many.

    Where can I find their examples before installing them. It is not feasible installing all of them. Please help.

    TIA

    B.R.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Why not install all of them? They don't take that much space. Then you can play with them and figure out which work best for you. Once you have done that, you can remove the fonts you don't care about and recover the space they do occupy.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
