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.
