Installing groff fonts – the install-font script

Installing fonts for use with groff isn’t difficult, but there are a number of steps involved which can make it a nuisance.

The subject is covered in-depth in the html documentation, but if you want to simplify the process, download and install the script install-font.sh.

install-font.sh is a bash script that takes care of all the details of font installation, including making fonts available system-wide.

After downloading, put the script anywhere you like, make it executable (chmod 755 install-font.sh), and type install-font.sh -H for instructions.

Actual installation of fonts requires superuser priviledges, so be sure to run it with sudo.
