@tjbp Thanks for (finally) removing those bogus dependencies. Can you also drop the pinned notice here on the AUR? I believe it is obsolete. All of the necessary tooling works just fine.

@caleb thanks for chasing this up - the problem is admittedly upstream of afdko - python-fontparts has a checkdepends on python-fontpens, but neither the requirements.txt nor dev-requirements for fontParts requires fontPens. Since there's a dependency the other way around, things become cyclic and break.

@tjbp I am the maintainer for AUR packages for adfko and ufo2otf. I expect them to work to build this, can you confirm and remove the pinned notice if it works for you?

Also please drop the fontconfig & xorg-font-utils dependencies, they are obsoleted by Arch's hooks in those packages.

This package is not out of date (there is no new upstream version). Upstream is a ufo file which needs compiling to otf using ufo2otf, however Arch doesn't have working implementations of fontforge or afdko (ie. a makeotf binary). If you can fix ufo2otf, this package will build successfully.

Again wont build ... its an .ufo file now

I opened a bug report upstream to possibly fix the otf download.

@ankitrgadiya Thanks, beat me to it - please see comment on that package.

@tjbp I added ufo2otf to AUR

tjbp commented on 2017-12-07 16:21 (UTC)

@ankitrgadiya - will fix shortly, online builder seems to be broken so need to add something like ufo2otf to AUR and use in makedepends before that source will work.

Can you please update the source url, url is not working. Use this one instead <>.

@Markus00000: Whoops, you're right. Fixed.

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

tjbp commented on 2012-08-11 10:27 (UTC)

Thanks, updated.
