List the fonts in a Gimp XCF file

Editing text layers in Gimp is hit or miss if the font isn’t installed. You can tell it isn’t installed because when you click on the text with the text tool, no font name or size is listed.

Find the font

Requires the GNU CLI utilities.

strings jugo-artwork-alt.xcf | grep font  

Install the font before opening the XCF file.
