@ Aerion thank you. Arch needs someplace for AUR maintainers to drop things like this.

More potential upstream sources?

http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/beteckna-fonts.git/
https://packages.debian.org/sid/fonts-beteckna

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beteckna
says it's on
http://openfontlibrary.org
but I didn't find it there...nor on google fonts.

Here's the actual point of origin upstream URL (BirdFont file format).
https://gitorious.org/birdfont/font

I have created an updated PKGBUILD that downloads the font tarball from my Dropbox account. It can be downloaded here:

I hope this helps other users of this beautiful font!

Unfortunately the upstream URL is now dead.

I can't seem to find another locate where the entire font family can be downloaded from, all font download sites seem to offer the LowerCase variety, leaving out the SmallCaps and Regular varieties.

As it's a GPL licensed font, I'll upload a tarball to my Dropbox account and post the URL here so that the PKGBUILD can be updated. I won't have time to do this until the weekend though.

On an updated arch64 system with nvidia, I get two spaces in place of 'ff'. An example: The word 'different' appears as 'di erent' and 'effort' appears as 'e ort'. Is this related to the font?
