Please do not report installation problems with AUR font packages here! I do not maintain them, if you want it fixed, report it to the respective maintainers.

@MarsSeed this package no longer enable Infinality feature (that as you said, it has been deprecated!) but sets fonts substitution: as you can see, the 30-infinality-aliases.conf file contains "override" rules for family font, that is use font XYZ for serif font family. Thus, this package (as it's "father" fonts-meta-base) is still relevant.

PS: I agree for the fact it/they need to be updated...

This 'kind-of' metapackage with Infinality related additional alias configs is no longer useful.

Because Infinality rendering modes are no longer supported by current version of freetype2.

Upstream removed the Infinality engine a year ago, after 10 years of no development and due to being buggy.

Please remove replaces directive. Not appropriate to attempt to override packages in official repositories.

I encountered a PDF issue described here [] that I successfully fixed following the @Xiota answer; if other users loving former infinality config like me found this trick good, I suggest to add this font substitution here (since Nimbus is included in the GSfonts package that is a dependency here).


  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "/etc/fonts/conf.d/fonts.dtd">

  <alias binding="same">



Let keep this project alive!

Before installing note that the link is down for the ttf-impallari-cantora zip file, however it is available here:

@jurf Hooray. Apparently he's going to add build instructions so I'll wait on that rather than making a mess of the PKGBUILD.

BTW, Gelasio is now (finally!) available on GitHub:

should 'font-bh-ttf' be added as dep, since alias.conf file uses it?

rashkov commented on 2017-12-21 01:36 (UTC)

you are doing gods work. thank you! my eyes feel so much better.

I am surprised that Arch's general recommendations guide doesn't recommend this package. They just point you to the fontconfig wiki as if people are capable of curating a set of fonts and adding freetype configurations! It used to recommend people use infinality, but it should definitely recommend this instead.

Thank you again.

Mostly I haven't created packages for them because I haven't found a remote source that's trustworthy, includes a copy of the license, and is possible to pull from. But come to think of it, if they're licensed under the OFL anyway, I could just stick them on my GitHub.
