Hi, maybe the list of FontSubstituions is at least a hint. fonts = Union[(FontSubstitutions /. Options[$FrontEnd, FontSubstitutions]) /. Rule[_, name_] :> name] Column[Style["Hello World!", FontFamily -> #, 18] & /@ fonts] On OSX I can use almost all installed fonts in Mathematica. With X in Linux this seems a bit different. The fonts are very OS-dependend and I even don't know whether in the case of Linux the underlying GUI (which is QT afaik) handles the font stuff or whether Mathematica interacts directly with the X-Server. We had a discussion here concerning the micro-symbol which is not directly connected to your problem but maybe of interest: http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2010/Feb/msg00332.html http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2010/Feb/msg00361.html Cheers Patrick On Sat, 2010-10-02 at 05:45 -0400, Eric Rasmusen wrote: > Is there a Mathematica command for finding out (a) what FontFamily > possibilities and (b) what fonts, are available? >
