GNU Font Editor
Graphical font editor

GNU Font Editor (GFE) is a graphical font editor based on the GIMP Toolkit. It is easy to use and will eventually support many font types. Currently it supports only BDF (bitmap distribution format) font files, that can be converted to many other formats easily. This is not a finished package, as it is still in the alpha stage. This project was a GNU package. It has since been decommissioned and is no longer developed.
