gfontview is a Font Viewer for outline fonts (PostScript Type 1 and TrueType). It lets you view uninstalled fonts. It will display all fonts present in the chosen directory in a list, with a preview of the font in the main window. It allows printing samples and font catalogs. 'gfontview' also allows you to display a particular character or string of a font in an own window, thus allowing a comparison between several fonts with a particular string sample. This character or string can be antialiased (smoothed).
