Re: gnome-font-viewer and gnome-thumbnail-font

I spoke with Rodrigo, who originally committed the change to delete it.

We agreed that dropping the fontilus and themus vfs methods made sense,
since they no longer work, but the font viewer and thumbnailer (whch
were in the same dir) really should have stayed, since they have no

(GNOME Specimen could be a replacement, but it currently lacks the
functionality, and is not part of Desktop).

So the plan was to bring back the viewer and the thumbnailer for at
least 2.24 and then look at addressing the problem properly. I agree
that gnome-control-center is not really a sensible place for the
binaries, nor is gnome-utils, but g-c-c had the advantage of at least
being able to recover the translations, etc.

I'll reopen the bug with this text.
