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

heads up - the .SRCINFO has mismatched data to PKGBUILD

Flagged out-of-date. 4.4 is now out.

This package should at least depend on fontconfig and xorg-font-utils for the processing of the install script (and you shouldn't mention the latter in the source array). And the current way to update the font cache is using

fc-cache -s >/dev/null

nowadays. See for the reason.

Fixed the post-install. Checksum works for me. Thanks.

Also, it current fails due to non-matching checksum.

Should go to 'fonts' category probably.

I switched to using the archives directly from GitHub.
Thanks for the install command!

Upstream has updated to 4.0.3 so the current source link 404s. It may be better to just create a Git package if upstream removes old archives frequently.

Incidentally, you can use a single install command in the package function:

package() {
install -Dm644 "${srcdir}/font-awesome-${pkgver}/fonts/FontAwesome.otf" \
