Adding it as a dep is a good idea. Once it's installed, it can be found in
the menu under "Other" in xfce. I'm not sure where it shows up in other
menus. The user can dig through the menu and find it once, then copy the
.desktop files to their desktop. They're in /usr/share/applications/
LARGER_FONTS.desktop and SMALLER_FONTS.desktop

Getting the icons on the desktop in the live iso is easy - I just put a
copy in the rootfs_overlay and it gets copied to the target. I'm not sure
what the best way would be to do this automatically.

OK, this works, too. It copies the .desktop files to the current user's

xdg-desktop-icon install --novendor LARGER_FONTS.desktop

xdg-desktop-icon install --novendor SMALLER_FONTS.desktop
