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 + 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

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