Summary description:  A bash script for installing a Postscript Type1 font family. 
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
With this script you can install a Postscript Type1 font family (at least the four
basic cuts + (faked) small caps + faked slanted, but no expert fonts) for using
it with LaTeX (MiKTeX). The script will rename the fonts automatically (optinal)
or will otherwise expect 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.

License: LPPL

New in v1.2:

 - added the options scaled and leading to the created style file to scale the font
   for better matching with other fonts and to increase the leading between lines

This package is located at

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