If you're a fan of fonts like I am than you will appreciate TypeCatcher. It lets you preview and download/install fonts from Google's servers in one click.
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install typecatcher

Hi, that is a great find. I used to use fontypython a while back. I see this is something else, I like most apps relating to fonts.

Will definitely check this one out.

I recommend using Roboto (normal weight) as your system font...it looks excellent in Peppermint. I use size 8 but any size looks fine.

Very nice, Roboto was what I used in Crunchbang.  It looked really sharp in the Openbox menus.  I'd completely forgotten how good it looks.  I'll give it a whirl in Peppermint.  For my terminal font, I always use, Terminus (normal weight) at size 13 because of my knackered eyes.  I know it sounds corny but it looks the business in the terminal  ;)

TypeCatcher is excellent, I stumbled onto it a couple of weeks ago. It's surprising there has not been more news about it. For me, it's a 'must install' app.
