Suppose I want to add a new font to my TeX system. The font may be Cabin and the system may be TeXLIve 2010 (I prefer not to update it for the moment).
The README says: “To install this package on a TDS-compliant TeX system unzip the file
tex-archive/install/fonts/cabin.tds.zip at the root of an appropriate
texmf tree, likely a personal or local tree.”
TeXLive on a Mac doesn't seem to be TDS-compliant (whatever this may means), since when I download the zip fie it unzips by itself into a Mac directory called “cabin”. So I am left with the task of copying a tree into a tree.
The first tree is
---- files such as README and samples
The second tree is
Not quite the same thing. People suggest that I use cp -R in the Terminal. But a quick look at man cp suggest that cp -R would hardly do the job of putting everything in the right place (that is directories with the same name) in the sublevels of the second tree.
Does somebody know a solution? (I could do it by hand, but this not the last time I install a new font in TeXLive.)
