PSA: I've started hosting this as a prebuilt package in my repository for those that want to install it using pacman without messing around with building from the AUR.

@t_thomas Thanks for the correction. It seems that python-pcpp is another new build time dependency and I was building on a machine that already had it for other reasons and hence didn't notice. I've added it it to this package. Note that there is already an AUR package for it so you didn't have to get it manually from PyPi. This package should build cleanly again, and thanks again for the tip-offs! (Also it should go a little faster because I enable parallel builds, see my previous discussion with the author who doesn't want that turned on by default for dev purposes but it works fine for this.)

@ caleb: Thanks for the info regarding the README file :D

Sorry, I made a typo, I meant pcpp NOT pcss. It was this package I hat to install

caleb commented on 2020-06-21 11:47

@t_thomas The upstream project has renamed the file from README.txt to, the build needs to be updated to reflect this.

As for python-pcss I have no idea what you are talking about, I haven't heard of such a thing nor do I have trouble building without it. There are some other changes to the build dependencies in the last week or so. I've updated those but nothing about "pcss".

Thanks at first but I had to manually install the Python Package "pcss", that wasn't quite a problem.

BUT I can't finish the AUR install process. I manage to complete the build() task of otf-libertinus-git but when the package() task starts I get an error promted. Does anybody know how to handle that?

==> Starting package()... install: cannot stat 'README.txt': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... Error making: otf-libertinus-git

//EDIT: I manuall removed the entry of "README.txt" in the last line of the install command within the package() routine in the PKGBUILD file. I guess there should be no error, maybe someone is interessted into that "fix"

@CircleCode: First, python-sfdlib is provided by sfd2ufo which I did publish to AUR (edit: I see the issue is some AUR helpers don't use tho API to lookup provides, they only use package indexes or 1-to-1 package names; even though even the AUR web site is correctly linking where the dependency can be provided I accommodated yay by using the package name instead of the provided library). As for python-ufolib2, I am not the maintainer. I saw them version bump it a few hours ago and assumed they posted the latest, but apparently not. It moved to 0.6.0 but not 0.6.2. You could try building this with that by dropping the version requirement but I don't know what that will do. I've flagged that OOD and posted a patch to update it (two patched actually, one fixing other issues). Hopefully that gets accepted, but you can apply the patches yourself if you need to build this sooner. Also the finished package is up to date in my repository if you want to just install it from there.

@caleb: didn't you forget to publish python-sfdlib and python-ufolib2>=0.6.2 on aur ? they can not be found by yay…

caleb commented on 2020-03-26 08:47

@CircleCode et all: the various dependencies this requires to build have been updated elsewhere in the AUR. No changes to this package are needed, it now builds as-is.

caleb commented on 2020-03-25 22:59

@CircleCode Thanks for the heads up on this. I've packaged the missing Python dependency (a font conversion utility by the author of this font) and updated the other changes. I'm still having trouble building this though, I'm getting a Python error. If anybody figure it out please let me know, in the mean time I'm reporting it upstream.

CircleCode commented on 2020-03-25 19:03

since commit 33bce0e684f55da4eadc0d25dca1cbf450e74d54, alif-type/sfdLib is required to build (they updated the build instructions). So the font does not build anymore :(

@yochananmarqos Right you are, thanks.
