Font Finagler - Installer Packages

About these installer packages:

The Font Finagler disk image, provided on the Overview page, allows a simple drag-and-drop type install, and is usually sufficient for most users. The Font Finagler installer package provided here is intended primarily for system administrators who need a standardized installation of Font Finagler over a large number of Macs, potentially for users who may not have administrator privileges. To be properly set up for both normal users and non-administrator users alike, Font Finagler needs to install a privileged helper tool, which requires an administrator username and password to do. This installer package installs the Font Finagler application, the aforementioned privileged helper tool, and the finagler command-line tool all in one. While the package also requires an administrator username and password, you can use remote management software (like Apple Remote Desktop or similar) to enter those credentials once to install the package to multiple Macs simultaneously.

For full details on the available commands and syntax, type /usr/local/bin/finagler --help or man finagler in a Terminal window.
