Xfstt means "X11 Font Server for TrueType fonts". TrueType fonts are generally regarded to be the best scalable fonts for low resolution devices like screens. Examples where good scalable fonts improve the visual quality considerably are Mozilla, GIMP, and Java. A fonts.properties file for use with Java is provided.
ttmkfdir is a tool to create valid and complete fonts.dir files from TrueType fonts. It is very useful when you plan to use a TrueType enabled font server that is based on the X11R6 sample implementation (xfsft for instance). Great care has been taken to correctly identify the encodings that a given TrueType font supports.
acoc is a regular-expression based colour formatter for programs that display output on the command-line. It works as a wrapper around the target program, executing it and capturing the stdout stream. Optionally, stderr can be redirected to stdout, so that it, too, can be manipulated. acoc then applies matching rules to patterns in the output and applies colours to those matches.
webFonts4Linux is a shell scripts that automates the process of downloading and installing Microsoft's Web Core Fonts, a collection of high-quality True Type fonts designed for use with low resolutions. webFonts2Linux exists because although these Microsoft distributes these fonts for free, strong redistribution restrictions makes it impossible to distribute a tarball or package containing them.
Fontlinge searches for font files, sorts them into folders by name and look and with human readable names, stores gathered font information in a database, generates previews and posters, finds and removes duplicates, and reunites PostScript font families. Also, Fontlinge has a Web interface to browse through your fonts. It shows detail previews and font info, provides font download as a tarball, and has the possibility to sort fonts.
