For slow modems I suggest to modify the script, to resume download, as follows:

if [ "$INSTALLED" == "" ] ; then

until [ $COUNTER -lt 1 ]; do
clear
echo "Starting the download of free fonts from highfonts.com"

Does it install them as well? Because I know different types of fonts go in different folders, so it would be a pain to move all them, or I could be wrong.

Nope... It just downloads the fonts as zipped files.

Try to extract the font(s) you want in /home/.fonts/
