I'm getting some weirdness with this.

  • When launching from shell, I get "Error in startup script." when invoking fontviewer -h.
  • Cannot view fonts when launched from shell. It looks like Tk doesn't load properly.

Here's the error I get when I use fontviewer -h:

Doesn't work on termite or sterminal.

@bidulock Thank you for filling this bug, i talked to the autor which will provide a proper fix for this, so that i don't need to patch something. Will be update tomorrow.

script invokes wish8.5 which no longer exists. (wish8.6) probably a good idea to patch it to just wish

Thanks Stefan, change license to custom:BSD, i also talk to the developer to provide a licensefile.

To fulfil the Arch Linux Packaging Guidelines regarding license issues a seperate license file is needed, because BSD is not a common license. So please use "license=('custom:BSD')" and replace the build function with the following package function, which cuts the license text from the script. package() { install -D -m755 $pkgname$pkgver.tcl $pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname install -d $pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname head -28 $pkgname$pkgver.tcl | tail -27 > $pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/License }
