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). It supports 
font series from light to ultra bold + (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. 5nar8a.pfb). After running the script, you should
have a working font installation in your local TeX tree.
