OpenType font editor/creator. Free, fully functional, but slightly limited version of the commercial 'Type' font editor/designer.
The free version can create and edit up to 65535 glyphs in a unicode font and seems to have lots of great functions.
The commercial version includes more advanced editing tools, a scan and trace option plus kerning and more.
Install, edit, create, save - seems that everything works!
What does not
Unable to open help - "Unable to open help file".
Does not show invisible .font directory in Linux home directory. Workaround is to go to the user's home directory and type in '.font' (without the quotes) as the file to open and it then goes into the correct directory.
What was not tested
Nothing of consequence.
Seems like a good font editor with support for modern font technology. Good speed even on an old CPU.
