@dluciv deactivated the ftp mirror and now redirects all downloads to this cdn-fastly.

Not really important because the package is outdated now, but there is no available.

Thanks! Updated, also I changed the ftp url to a more general CDN which should select the nearest mirror for everyone. Also, what do you think of updating this package automatically when debian bumps a new version?

The ftp server has been changed from "" to "", also there is a new version 1.176.

Hi - looks like there's a new version again, 1.175 now.

limadm commented on 2017-11-07 19:33

Updated! I have also noticed that FTP servers went down some months ago, thanks! :O

Hi there! The source URL needs to be updated for a newer version 1.170 :

Sorry for the late reply, I've just updated the package.

I still always get this error:
=> ERROR: Failure while downloading

Thanks to you! Works now.

limadm commented on 2017-01-10 13:47

Thanks for noticing, it's updated. =)

It seems there is a new version. The old version can't be found anymore.

I prefer not to use long one-liners, but in this case we can simplify to:
sed -i '44s/if (/if (\$\#ARGV \< 0 \|\| /' usr/bin/bdf2psf

So, thank you.

Try this one.
- Bumped pkgver to current version in the Debian repos
- Changed the patch file into one line of sed scripting

pkgdesc='Debian utility to convert BDF font files to PSF format.'

build() {
tar -xf data.tar.xz
cp usr/bin/bdf2psf usr/bin/bdf2psf_original
sed -i '44s/if (\$ARGV\[0\] eq \"\-\-help\" \|\| \$ARGV\[0\] eq \"\-h\") /if (\$\#ARGV \< 0 \|\| \$ARGV\[0\] eq \"\-\-help\" /' usr/bin/bdf2psf

package() {
cd "$srcdir"
cp -r usr "$pkgdir"

Thanks, it's working again. =)
