I noticed that it's kinda hard to install scanlation fonts when setting up a linux system.
How about we make an Archlinux AUR package containing "essential" fonts for scanlation?
Stuff used a lot like ccjoekubert, CC wild words, anime ace...

It is? I just copy them to the right folder. Seems better than windows where you have to specifically drag and drop them, or use the GUI.
It depends on the system. It's also cleaner to bundle them in a package, whose installation is easy and makes uninstalling it easy too.
It would also prevent the hassle of visiting a trillion websites in order to find each font (not to mention some are sometimes behind a paywall).
Why? This is manga-related, and I figured I'd get some input from scanlators before attempting this.
Distributing fonts that are under a copyright isn't possible in AUR or any "official" repos. Saying this because you mentioned the paywall.
It sounds like a nice idea but I don't scanlate so my opinion doesn't really matter.
Okay, sorry for being retarded
Looks like all the "nice" fonts (CCJoe, Wild Words...) are copyright. Fuck, I guess.
Well, I don't know how Linux works, but on Windows you don't need to actually install fonts to use them in Photoshop, you can just drop them into c:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts\
