The upstream author has renamed the font due to copyright claims. A new AUR package has been created to reflect this renaming:

I'm going to be creating a new package, ttf-ui-inter, for the renamed font. I'm waiting on the upstream author to correct some broken file naming in his 1.8.1 release and then I will release the new AUR package.

@budkin - ugh...what a pain. I'm going to have to delete this package and create a new one under the new name. :(

Yeah, you're right. I looked at some of the official packages, and they are not consistent as you mentioned. Ignore my comment as it seems there isn't a clear preference for Arch as a whole. :)

Hi @saildata, I followed the lead of some other font packages that I use (noto, adobe-source-code-pro-fonts, etc) and installed them into their own directory. Is there an official standard for this? I see official packages that install to different places.

Thanks for updating the package. I noticed that the latest version installs into `"${pkgdir}/usr/share/fonts`, wouldn't it make more sense to put it in `"${pkgdir}/usr/share/fonts/TTF`?

Good catch @saildata. Updated to v1.4 and switched to the hinted TTF fonts.

saildata commented on 2017-08-29 03:09

- Version 1.4 is available
- Shouldn't the package name be otf-interface? The fonts installed are OTF not TTF.
- TTF is available. The best/easiest solution would probably be to update the PKGBUILD for the correct file type, and create another AUR package for OTF.
Thanks -
