Font Management In Linux, Part 2 - page 4
Previewing FontsFontForge is an interesting font viewing, editing, and creation application. Its interface is rather rickety-looking; tiny jaggedy non-resizable fonts, and no configuration options such as default font directories or themes. It starts in your home directory whether you want it to or not.
But underneath the plain face is a power tool for creating fonts in all formats, and for converting fonts into different formats. Linux supports a wide range of font formats, but if you ever need to make a conversion this is the tool to use. The documentation is extensive and available in several languages. It even supports Wacom tablets. The Libertine fonts were created with FontForge. Designing fonts is a difficult and time-consuming task, but who knows, you may find you have a talent for it.
