Please note that these fonts are not perfect (the outlines are not very good); use the font files provided by the terminus-font package instead when possible, their quality should be much better. These TTF files are mainly intended for use by Java applications which do not support fontconfig, like Netbeans -- the subpar outlines are not a problem in those applications because Java uses the (good) bitmaps anyway.

FYI, this TTF version now again is a direct conversion of Terminus Font (without any changed/added glyphs and without any upstream patches).

This generated TTF still has Visual Studio fix?

Thank you. Tblue. Start knowing little about PKGBUILD. Hope I can also contribute something to the community!

The trailing 3 in 4.39-3 is the package release number, not the version number of the packaged TTFs. :-) The fonts itself are still at version 4.39 and there hasn't been a new release for a while.

- Package release 3 uses "fc-cache -s" instead of "fc-cache -sf" after installation and updating, which should speed up font cache generation since it does not force regeneration of all font caches, but only regenerates those which are out of date.
- Package release 2 added a package() function to the PKGBUILD. That function used to be optional, but the latest makepkg release requires it to be present.

If you are interested in the details, please look here: https://github.com/Tblue/archlinux-packages/commits/master/terminus-font-ttf

Just curious what's the update in this 4.39-3 ?

While official versions are all staying with 4.39. http://files.ax86.net/terminus-ttf/files/4.39/

Thanks.

Thanks, fixed.

using a PKGBUILD without a package() function is deprecated

This package contains (automatically generated and scalable) TTF versions of Terminus Font; the package in [community] contains the original (and official) bitmap fonts.

If in doubt, use the [community] package as the TTF versions are of lower quality -- they are intended mainly for Java applications which cannot use bitmap fonts.

What's the difference between this package and https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/any/terminus-font/?
