@ el_aur

Sorry about that. I thought the pkgbuild had been abandoned due to the length of time it was out-of-date. It was causing me issues and it took me a bit of trial and error to switch to infinity. I was just passing on the info for others. I believe I can delete it if you would like.

wtf? why to advertise other packages here

Updated to 2.6.3

A fix for this out-of-date package build:

Use pacman -Rdd to remove the ubuntu related font packages, skipping all dependency checks.

pacman -Rdd freetype2-ubuntu
pacman -Rdd cairo-ubuntu
pacman -Rdd fontconfig-ubuntu

Install the infinity font related packages from AUR


To build and install:

makepkg -si

makepkg -si

makepkg -si

Configure fonts:


Alternative method, add bohoomil infinality-bundle repository to pacman.conf.

@el_aur: Will you move your ass and update this package (or at least fix the PKGBUILD)? We wait for months for that...

Any chance you could also make lib32 version of freetype2-ubuntu and maybe fontconfig-ubuntu? :)

A thread with more discussion about this problem on the Infinality side:

You can just reinstall the package, edit the PKGBUILD and add to the provided dependencies since freetype2-ubuntu provides the library anyway afaik:

provides=("freetype2=$pkgver" "")

I updated libbluray without errors after that.

Can confirm libbluray wants to install freetype2 from repos, had to put it on ignore for now.
