Thanks (to all)! I think xfd is the one I had in mind, though xfontsel, even
less friendly to use, might be it too. Gucharmap is not. Fontypython looks
useful, but not what I had in mind - I thought there was, and was hoping for,
one much like Windows had 20 years ago (and still had last I looked).


Any idea if exists FOSS clone of it?
