@a.kudelin LibreOffice's Type1 font support is removed in LO 5.3, So you cannot these font in LO with this package.

To use these font in LO, buy these font with OpenType format from linotype, GmbH ...

If you're using Pentaho Data Integration Tools (PDI) ,, which uses Helvetica in the splash screen, this package will crash the startup process, without explanation. It took me more then 3 days to figure this out. I want to save people some time of their life and hopefully Google will index this comment properly.

Where can i find the mirrors?

Looks like the file was removed from their FTP site.

I just used some mirror. Good thing we have a checksum.

Might want to up that to sha256 now that we have to use potentially unsafe mirrors.

The type1afm binary is (now?) included in t1lib, and it needs to be included in makedepends. I recommend: diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD index ed8e21a..0b7dbe3 100644 --- a/PKGBUILD +++ b/PKGBUILD @@ -7,7 +7,7 @@ pkgdesc="Adobe base 14 fonts (Courier, Helvetica, Times, Symbol, ZapfDingbats wi url="ftp://" license=('custom') arch=('any') -makedepends=('t1utils') +makedepends=('t1utils' 't1lib') install=ttf.install source=("") md5sums=('3c168eab471aef91f1436c57ba7963b2')
