Date: Novem­ber 7, 2010 5:23:20 PM CET
On Sun, 7 Nov 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). 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 (opti­nal) 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. Li­cense: LPPL New in v1.6a: - Bug­fix: \Re­quirePack­age{soft­mak­er­free­font} got lost in the last up­date
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 .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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.
