Hi all,

I would liek to propose that when onse chooses to create symlinks during
installation that
  /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype ->
  /usr/local/share/fonts/opentype ->
are being created.

In this way, systems such as Ubuntu can directly access the fonts
without any further configuration. This is an identical approach as is
done now for the files that end up in /usr/share/bin. When needed also
absolute path can be used.

What is the opinion of the TeX Live maintainers on this?
