Please note that these fonts are not perfect (bad outlines); use the font files provided by the terminus-font package 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 bad outlines are not a problem here because Java uses the (good) bitmaps anyway.

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up font cache generation since it does not force regeneration of all font caches, but only regenerates those which are out of date.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/?

Hi, I've just noticed terminus 4.36 is out since 2011-07-23.

Tblue commented on 2011-05-08 15:58

You're right; done in 4.34-2. As COPYING rarely changes, its filename still doesn't contain a version number.

Thanks for the hint.

I try again with removed old one sources *.ttf, which is keeped on my host in SRCPKGDEST dir (/etc/makepkg.conf) and it's succeeded, so I think that the problem occured because pacman thinks that this sources already download and try to check their md5sums, which is bad because old one from previous version is different. May be it's not good to have this *.ttf files without version info?

Works for me:
