I've been trying to find a font management tool that is free, but all solutions are comercial. Is there a good font management tool that is free?
I'm unsure about the goodness, but Fontmatrix is a free & openâ€“source font manager that is available to Linux (as well as to Windows & OS X). Its searching and font comparison tools seem to be comprehensive.
The UI may be a bit rough on the edges and development isn't exactly rapid (last update 1Â½ years ago), but at least the price is right!

There's font-manager which is available for most linux distributions shipping with Gnome. It isn't installed by default but should be available to install through the package management system.
