Sorry, Marcel_K, I don't have time at the moment, so I abondoned the package. I would be glad, if you make the appropriate corrections.

BTW, you should install a license file when using a custom license (and nowadays, this package belongs to category 'fonts').

You shouldn't touch $pkgdir in build(), use package() instead; and you don't need to mkfontscale and mkfontdir usr/share/fonts/TTF if you don't install font files there.

To all users of this package:

PLEASE USE otf-latin-modern

I will not update this package any more since having two equal packages in aur makes no sense.
Thank you for you answer, hilton.

Hello titiwu,

yes, the correct folder to install the OTF fonts is /usr/share/fonts/OTF
Also, in the .install file you should specify the folder name like this:

fc-cache -f &> /dev/null
mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/OTF
mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/OTF

I've no problem if my package is removed. The only difference seems to be the destination (/usr/share/fonts/OTF in otf-latin-modern)

Is there any "better" ore correct folder for the fonts?

But I will update the package anyway! Thanks for the hint.

The mkdir and install lines should state:

mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/$pkgname/usr/share/fonts/TTF
install -m 0644 *.otf $startdir/pkg/$pkgname/usr/share/fonts/TTF

And one of the otf-latinmodern and otf-latin-modern packages is obsolete...
