I followed the directions in:

I installed the tetex-bin package in order to have the ttf2afm utility. I put
this script in my TrueType fonts directory:

#! /bin/sh

set -e

for i in *.ttf
        /usr/bin/ttf2afm $i > ${i%ttf}afm

Running this script will generate .afm's for all of your TrueType fonts.
