CTAN Up­date: in­stall­font

Date: March 16, 2010 9:25:40 AM CET
On Mon, 15 Mar 2010, Josef Kle­ber sub­mit­ted an up­date to the in­stall­font pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A bash script for in­stalling a LaTeX font fam­ily Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
With this script you can in­stall a LaTeX font fam­ily (Postscript Type1, True­type, Open­type). At least the four ba­sic cuts + (faked) small caps + faked slanted, but no ex­pert fonts. The script will re­name the fonts au­to­mat­i­cally (opti­nal) or will oth­er­wise ex­pect *.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 TeX tree. Li­cense: LPPL New in v1.3: - added in­stall­font-tl for TeXLive (thanks to Christoph Bier) - added sup­port for True­type (needs ttf2pt1) and Open­type fonts (needs otftotfm (LCDF Typetools) and pf2afm (Ghostscript)) - added eval­u­a­tion of com­mand line op­tions - added an unin­stall op­tion - added sup­port for in­stal­la­tion as \rmde­fault, \sfde­fault or \ttde­fault - Bug­fix: au­to­matic re­nam­ing failed if in­stall­font was in work­ing di­rec­tory - Bug­fix: changed \set­stretch (setspace) to \line­spread (op­tion lead­ing)

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).

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.
