May you add provides=("acroread-fonts=${pkgver}" "ttf-adobe-fonts=${pkgver}" "ttf-adobe-fonts-cjkext=${pkgver}" "acroread-font-chinese-simplified=${pkgver}") to the PKGBUILD?

Or is it not applicable?

Thanks. Can see updates now.

Marcel_K commented on 2016-03-23 23:02

There's an epoch system in Arch, which I can set to 1 (> default 0). I'll do so shortly.

I haven't been updating this package on archlinuxcn because the check for new versions was failing to realize new versions were coming out. I just realized this issue and uploaded a new version to archlinuxcn, but nobody will know unless they install it directly:

sudo pacman -S acroread-fonts-systemwide
warning: downgrading package acroread-fonts-systemwide (11.0.10-1 => DC_2015.007.20033-1)

This is because pacman considers the old version (11.0.10-1) to be newer than the new version (DC_2015.007.20033-1).

Can you make a numbering system that is greater than 11.0.10-1?

Like, can you just start with 12DC instead of just DC?

Thanks. Got it built and uploading to archlinuxcn. Also added p7zip920 to archlinuxcn.

Marcel_K commented on 2015-02-25 18:21

FYI, it's a bug in p7zip, which will be fixed in its next version.

Marcel_K commented on 2015-02-25 13:55

Thanks for the report. It was not only a too long switch you bumped upon, but it turned out that p7zip was changed after the last major update, so that we can't extract the files anymore.

I uploaded an older version of p7zip to the AUR and made it a makedepend, so you can now rebuild this package again.

I'll try to find a neater solution than relying on an old(er) version of p7zip.

I had previously built the version available on 12/1/14, and it had the same 7z command in it. I had to do a fresh install on Christmas, and didn't get around to working on updating this until now. The version I build on 12/1 is on archlinuxcn, so I've got that one re-installed. I'm responsible for updating it, but can't due to this "Too long switch" on the 7z command.

Command Line Error:
Too long switch:
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

It doesn't like "7z -yir!131 ..."

I agree, thanks for the comment. I updated the package, but didn't bump pkgrel, as there's no need to reinstall (files are not changed).

Hello, @Marcel_K !

Appreciate your great work! I have a small proposal: standardize the using of `fc-cache` in install scripts.

Line #3 of `acroread-fonts-systemwide.install` should be:

fc-cache -s

See for the reason.

Do you agree with me? Hope for your reply!

Yours sincerely!

Please update according to kevku's comment. Adobe Reader 11.0.07 is out; however, you can't simply extract the exe file using 7z like you could do with versions <= 11.0.06.

The font pack contains the new fonts as well as the old ones. The JP, KR, CN and TW font packs become obsolete (I'd suspect they contain Chinese and Japanese characters, but couldn't find any).

Using parameter substitution you don't have to repeat the version numbers in the URL and file names.

And shouldn't the fonts be installed in /usr/share/fonts/OTF rather than in a custom adobe directory?

Last, but not least, this should be in the 'fonts' category, not in the 'office' one.

Anyway, I created a PKGBUILD for you:

why it doesn't include the adobe kaiti (Chinese)?

giniu commented on 2012-02-15 08:29

I fixed the package but I don't have time to maintain it, so disowned it again. Anyway, it should build now without problems.

Seems there are some problems with bsdtar:

.... Lzma library error: Invalid options
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
