On Fri, 1 Jan 2010 Josef Kle­ber sub­mit­ted the in­stall­font pack­age to CTAN. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /sup­port/in­stall­font Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A bash script for in­stalling a Postscript Type1 font fam­ily Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
With this script you can in­stall a Postscript Type1 font fam­ily (at least the four ba­sic cuts + small caps + faked slanted (pdfla­tex), but no ex­pert fonts) for us­ing it with LaTeX (MiKTeX). The script ex­pects the *.pfb and *.afm files named in the Karl Berry scheme (e.g. 5bbr8a.pfb). Just adapt the script vari­ables to your fonts and di­rec­to­ries. After run­ning it, you should have a work­ing font in­stal­la­tion in your lo­cal TeX tree.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/sup­port/in­stall­font . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=in­stall­font (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

in­stall­font – A bash script for in­stalling a font fam­ily

With this script you can in­stall a font fam­ily (PostScript Type 1, TrueType and OpenType for­mats are sup­ported). Font se­ries from light to ul­tra bold, and (faked) small caps and (faked) slanted shapes are sup­ported, but not ex­pert fonts.

The script will re­name the fonts au­to­mat­i­cally (op­tional) or will oth­er­wise ex­pect the *.afm files and the font files (in PostScript Type1 for­mat) named in the Karl Berry scheme (e.g. 5bbr8a.pfb). After run­ning the script, you should have a work­ing font in­stal­la­tion in your lo­cal tree.
