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). At least the
four basic cuts + light + (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. 5bbr8a.pfb). After running the script, you should
have a working font installation in your local TeX tree.

License: LPPL

New in v1.4:

- added support for light font
- Bugfix: added "Book" as grep search pattern for
          regular font

This package is located at

appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
