Thank you for fixing this! It bugged me for a long time :)

I'm disowning this because I don't use it any more and don't have time to respond to queries about it. Hopefully someone else may step in...?

Please remove pkgver() section. It causes version mismatch between AUR and local installation. I don't know what is the purpose for it.

I've resurrected an old package, ephifonts-no-helvetica, for those that want to use Futura and Gotham fonts but also want a pleasant browsing experience on Chrome etc.

Helvetica is actually Impact (the font typically used in memes), and messes up anything that tries to use Helvetica. Such as certain sites such as Facebook on Chromium.

The "Helvetica" font isn't Helvetica.

I've just pushed a new version of the package because some fonts were missing. I added the following:

helvetica-condensed helvetica-neue helvetica

futura-lt futura-lt-oblique futura-lt-light futura-lt-light-oblique futura-lt-heavy futura-lt-heavy-oblique futura-lt-extra-bold futura-lt-extra-bold-oblique futura-lt-condensed

Thanks to Markus Schanz for bringing this issue to my attention.

no errors with makepkg -cirs thank you for this, you could disallow websites to use their own fonts in firefox and have fontconfig liberation sans or helvetica lt std alias for sans-serif

2018-06-10 - with the missing fonts added italic/condensed is not used for regular any more :)

2018-09-08 - might need fontconfig entries (for webkit), add to fonts.conf:

<match target="pattern">
 <test name="family">
 <edit name="family" mode="assign" binding="same">
  <string>helvetica lt std</string>

I went to update the .SRCINFO in the package but found that the one that is already there is fine. At least I can do 'makepkg' or 'makepkg -S' and I don't get any error. In fact, doing 'makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO' doesn't change the existing .SRCINFO at all.

If I am wrong and have missed something please report back.
