This package installs the newest release by Georg Mayr-Duffner. See below for a list of included fonts. Because of the lack of bold faces, Google commissioned Octavio Pardo to continue the project (see Wikipedia). You can find the newer typeface at GitHub, Google Fonts, and on the AUR as ebgaramond-otf.

  • EBGaramond08-Italic.otf
  • EBGaramond08-Regular.otf
  • EBGaramond12-AllSC.otf
  • EBGaramond12-Italic.otf

@caleb https://bitbucket.org/georgd/eb-garamond and https://github.com/georgd/EB-Garamond are mirrors of each other (see bottom of README). 15 commits got pushed since the last release on 2014-04-07. Are these changes worth adding makedepends? If you think so, create a otf-eb-garamond-git package.

The download for this is obsolete, according to the upstream URL it seems to have moved from Bitbucket to Github here: https://github.com/georgd/EB-Garamond. You'll have to actually build the OTF from the font sources, which will need some makedepends. Can you please update this (or add me as a co-maintainer and I'll fix it up). Thanks.

The install file can be removed as the two dependencies provide the necessary alpm hooks for updating the font caches.

You shouldn't copy .otf files in /usr/share/fonts/TTF, but in /usr/share/fonts/OTF.

Shouldn't OTF files go into /usr/share/fonts/OTF/ instead of /usr/share/fonts/TTF?

OmeGa commented on 2013-03-07 21:30

Well, I thought those were TTF fonts, at least that's what the name implies, that's why I created this package. But you're right, that one also installs the OTF fonts instead of the TTF ones.

Hello,

May I point out that your package is the same as ttf-ebgaramond?
