Direc­tory support/installfont

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 (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.

For this month's (07/2013) free font on www.freefont.de,

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.
