I read about this and the LGPL.

The font would be delivered with the non-GPL-software and and would be 
installed in the font folder. The customer would be able to do it self 
too: Download and install the font in the system. So I wonder if LGPL is 
necessary here because the font is IMHO not linked... it's just 
delivered with the software. Or do I misunderstand "linking"?

Thanks again,
Lars Naber
