@fordperfect Strange, for some reason I could see the other package still. It did not look merged. I can not see the other package any more though. Temporary blip in the matrx?

@VorpalGun: Thanks, but you are about 2 years too late, the packages have been merged since 2020-05-16 (PRQ#19282).

@Amphytyron I believe that this one installs bitmap fonts as well as TTF fonts, while the other only installs TTFs. Still, they should be combined into the more feature rich package

Please update the url and source to download over HTTPS. Please remove the install script and corresponding dependencies, as these are now provided by pacman hooks.

@Malvineous It seems Bm437_*.FON has same shape with Px437_*.ttf. .FON removed at PKGBUILD release 2.

I get a whole bunch of errors when installing. Perhaps the .FON files don't need to be installed? (Not sure they are supported?)

The .install file can be removed (pacman hooks).
