That's also the one I have been using and really liked it. It was easy 
enough to operate. I tried installing Fontmatrix from the Synaptic 
Package Manager but it turns out to be the 0.4.2 version and I couldn't 
figure out how to really work it so I dumped it off the machine for the 
time being. I was trying to figure out how to get the 0.6.0 version but 
I still am having a difficult time understanding what I am trying to 
download from these sites and just how to get the stuff installed. I 
know there is an instruction sheet on the Fontmatrix pages that gives 
directions on what to type in the Terminal but I'm not sure what I am 
supposed to run it on. In other words what am I supposed to download in 
the first place.

Anyway I guess I will just wait a while. It would be nice to download 
and install the latest version using the Add/Remove dialog or the 
Synaptic Package Manager. By the way is there a way to update the info 
in the Synaptic Package Manager so it will get the latest version? Maybe 
this is off topic.
