Unfortunately, the font ZIP file referenced by the PKGBUILD at the moment seems to be no longer available (host unreachable). Google comes up with alternative sources, such as:

Try to execute: fc-cache -fs && sudo mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/TTF && sudo mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/TTF. And then reboot.

I'm unable to select Aller Regular 10 anymore for my Gnome desktop in gnome-tweak-tools since the last release - Aller Light gets selected instead. Can you check it please? Thanks!

I'm merging the package ttf-aller-std into the package ttf-aller [1] which is older, more updated and has more votes.

I can't seem to get this to build either. The SHA256 HASH is different for every download. Out of 7 download attempts, every one had a different SHA256 Hash, none matching the PKGBUILD. Any ideas what is causing this?

The Fontsquirrel download seems to need a different SHA256.

If that version is outdated, would it makes sense decrementing the
version or release number in the PKGBUILD, so people who already have
it installed won’t be downdated?

Thank you @Firef0x, I fixed it.
As far as I know, fontsquirrel ships somewhat outdated version of the font, but it will do.

Hello, @Yegorius !

Unfortunately, the source link is dead. Neither is the upstream URL .

Yours sincerely

Yegorius commented on 2013-06-16 07:40

This is a newer version and it's downloaded from official site.

What's the difference between this package and ttf-aller[1].


Yegorius commented on 2013-03-26 18:07

Thank you Marcel, I fixed the PKGBUILD.

Thanks for this package. You need to enclose all ${srcdir} and ${pkgdir} within double quotes to allow for spaces in directory names. And you need to add a maintainer line in your PKGBUILD.

Yegorius commented on 2013-03-22 20:42

This is a newer version of the font alongside proper packaging

Here's a cleaned-up version of the PKGBUILD:

dserban commented on 2011-06-25 17:28

You can use this sequence of commands inside the build() function:
wget -O
bsdtar -xf

in order to avoid storing the source in your Dropbox folder.

hmm, looks like evry time I download file from it has diffrent md5. For now I upload it on dropbox.

Wrong MD5 sum on PKGBUILD
