Josef Kle­ber sub­mit­ted an up­date to the in­stall­font pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: v1.7 Li­cense type: lppl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A bash script for in­stalling a LaTeX font fam­ily An­nounce­ment text:
With this script (in­stall­font for MiKTeX; in­stall­font-tl for TeXLive), you can in­stall a LaTeX font fam­ily (Postscript Type1, True­type, Open­type). It sup­ports font se­ries from light to ul­tra bold + (faked) small caps + faked slanted, but no ex­pert fonts. The script will re­name the fonts au­to­mat­i­cally (op­tional) or will oth­er­wise ex­pect *.afm files and the font files (in Postscript Type1 for­mat!) named in the Karl Berry scheme (e.g. 5nar8a.pfb). After run­ning the script, you should have a work­ing font in­stal­la­tion in your lo­cal TeX tree. For this month's (07/2013) free font on www.free­font.de, sim­ply run in­stall­font-tl -t otf -f 6sf -n 'Soft­maker Stafford Se­rial' -c Staffort -P SMFF at Ssf -p stafford -m stafford -O -d 2013/07/15 -v v1.0 -s soft­mak­er­free­font/Stafford to cre­ate and in­stall sup­port files for the us­age of Soft­maker Stafford Se­rial from light to ul­tra bold font se­ries.
