I want to be able to use a proprietary font on a number of Linux machines for which TeXLive is installed locally (not through the package manager). I have followed How do I use TrueType Fonts with PDFTeX using otftotfm? and have my proprietary font working with
pdflatex when all the files (map, encoding, tfm, pfb, ...) are in the working directory. I then followed Manual font installation and can manually install the font. I would like to automate the final step. Normally, I would create a Linux package that would install the needed files and do the configuration steps. Since I have TeXLive installed locally, I don't feel like using the system package manager is the way to go. I would like to create a TeXLive package and use
tlmgr to manage it.
The end goal is I want people to be able to do
tlmgr --file myfont and then be able to use the font. Is this possible?
