CTAN has a new package: installfont
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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html . ___________________________________________________ Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
installfont – A bash script for installing a LaTeX font family
With this script you can install a LaTeX 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 TeX tree.
