Install Adobe Source Code Pro font on Linux
#!/bin/sh
echo "installing fonts at $PWD to ~/.fonts/"
mkdir -p ~/.fonts/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro
git clone https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro.git ~/.fonts/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro
# find ~/.fonts/ -iname '*.ttf' -exec echo \{\} \;
fc-cache -f -v ~/.fonts/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro
echo "finished installing"

Thanks! mkdir -p ~/.fonts/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro should be just mkdir -p ~/.fonts/adobe-fonts because fontconfig automatically creates .uuid files. This makes the git command fail because the dir is nonempty.

How much of a nerd do you have to be to clone a entire git repository with mostly rubbish to just install a font?

Thanks, very useful. However, I'd recommend to use --depth 1

Thanks, this was very helpful. Can't believe you have to manually install it on Kali. This helped a lot!
