@CommodoreCrunch @Vash63, I am (and already was when suggested you the change) aware of this issue and this is a well-known "AUR helper" long stand issue. My suggestion is to have font-symbola in the deps array: 1) you can notice AURweb (this web page...) works well by providing us the two alternatives (otf-symbola, ttf-symbola) and 2) as @CommodoreCrunch stated below, pacman that's having the ability to "solve" this dependency, works well, as well

I'm left with two bad options here. I can either explicitly require ttf-symbola and break any compatibility with otf-symbola, or ignore the fact that some AUR helpers handle this poorly. If I tell pacman to install "java-environment", it gives me a list of providers. Ideally, helpers should do the same, but I guess some don't. In some ways, that's out of the scope of what I should be worrying about, given that AUR helpers aren't really supported anyway. I don't know.

The change to requiring 'font-symbola' instead of 'ttf-symbola' breaks AUR helpers as that package doesn't exist on its own, only as a 'provides'. If you manually install ttf-symbola first then this package installs fine, but simply attempting to pull this package causes a dependency check failure, at least with aurutils.

ttf-symbola package have been updated; now it provides symbola.{ttf,otf}; I suggest to upgrade dependency to "font-symbola" instead of "ttf-symbola" as new package provides it; in this way, both kind of fonts format are "supported"

@docrobot SourceForge got hit with what they claim is a DDoS attack early this week and they still haven't fully recovered. If the checksum doesn't match, I honestly wouldn't trust it right now.

EDIT: Yeah, so what gets downloaded right now isn't a tar archive at all, despite the extension. It's just a 600 byte error message.

where is the .conf file in which are instruct Bohoomil font substitutions (aliases and replacements)?

Can someone expand upon what they mean with the out-of-date flag? I already replaced the dead upstream URL with one from the Wayback Machine. Is there a dependency in this metapackage with a dead link I'm unaware of? Until then, I've unflagged it.

upstream url is dead... maybe wayback machine have a copy? (either for this and -extended-lt

I’m not using Arch anymore, feel free to adopt this package, but take care of it!

rdoursenaud: not that I know of, but you could -dd install the package and then install replace the deps. Or remove the whole ibfonts-meta-base package and start from scratch, that’s probably recommended.

Adding conflicts ibfonts-meta-base would make the transition from Infinality easier IMHO. Edit: Already there. Not useful since dependencies are updated first and conflicts with the ib-* meta packages removal. Not sure if there could be a better strategy. Sorry for the noise.

@edgard: nice! will update. @F1nny: no idea, it worked ok on my end.

/edit Heads up - ttf-courier-prime is all screwy, something with the download agent it just won't allow the download keeps trying to access via HTTPS even though source is HTTP

Added the Heuristica package to AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ttf-heuristica
