TypeCatcher: An Easy Way To Download And Install Google Web Fonts
TypeCatcher is an Open Source application developed by Andrew Starr-Bochicchio. It allows you to easily download and install Google webfonts for off-line use.
Using TypeCatcher, we can easily:
- Preview fonts with adjustable size and text,
- Search Fonts by name,
- Download fonts,
- Install/Uninstall fonts in our computer,
- Search fonts description directly from the website.
This application is very simple, but very useful for designers, web developers and content makers etc.
Typecatcher can be installed using PPA developed by Andrew.
Add the following PPA in Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 distros.
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrewsomething/typecatcher
Update the sources list with command:
$ sudo apt-get update
Now install TypeCatcher using command:
$ sudo apt-get install typecatcher
In Ubuntu 13.10, TypeCatcher is available in the official repositories. So you don’t have to add the PPA. You can directly install it with the following command.
$ sudo apt-get install typecatcher
Open TypeCatcher either from your Dash or Menu. It will look like below.
If you want to install a particular font, just select it from the left pane and install it using the Download button in the menu bar.
Note: You can’t install all fonts at once, you can only install one font at a time.
To uninstall the fonts, simply select the fonts you want to uninstall and click on the Trash icon on the menu bar.
Find Fonts Details:
TypeCatcher also allows you to see the particular font details from it’s website. Click on the Font Info icon next to the Trash icon. It will open the corresponding font website to view the details of the font.
