Ubuntu – Font Manager Fails in Ubuntu 16.04


The Font Manager application fails to initialize in Ubuntu 16.04.

When I run Font Manager it starts to initialize saying "Querying installed files…" but quickly hangs. An Exit needs to use the Force Quit and then I get the "Not responding" message. So there is something wrong with this version of Font Manager or its integrating with Ubuntu 16.04.

I run 64-bit version of Ubuntu.

How could that be fixed?

this worked for me (ubuntu 16.04 upgrading from 15.10)

installed font manager from: http://fontmanager.github.io/

then, in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:font-manager/staging
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install font-manager

and downloaded font from fonts.google.com and extracted, then opened each font with right click -> font manager

confirmed 'install'
