@caleb This PKGBUILD contains San Francisco:

as does this one:

@Pilzbauer Adding a font will be up to the upstream Macbuntu project, this just repackages what is available in their repos. Alternatively if you know a good upstream source for it available without signing into Apple's developer website then we could consider splicing it in, but I don't know of a source.

caleb commented on 2018-03-02 08:49

To out of date flaggers: this package is not out of date. It builds off of the latest SVN revision anyway (and should probably be renamed ttf-mac-fonts-svn) but it isn't out of date. If you're having trouble building because the upstream is offline, know that SourceFource is having a massive outage right now and most of the repositories hosted there are offline. That's not this package's problem to fix and we'll just have to wait it out.

As Marcel_K mentioned, the fontconfig cache is now updated automatically by pacman hooks, so the install file can be removed.

Pilzbauer commented on 2017-01-29 18:29

Could you please add Apples 'new' San Francisco font?

Thank you!

jnbek commented on 2017-01-21 18:23

@mrlamud: I am unable to replicate that issue, can you try removing any custom fontconfig configuration to see if this helps correct the problem?

@CanalGuada, done, sorry about that.

@Marcel_K, my toughest customer, ;-) is that better? :D

Awk command in pkgver() function returns some garbage value if not using an english locale. For instance with a french one :
$ svn info | awk '/Revision/{r=$2}/Date/{gsub(/-/,"");d=$4}END{print d"."r}'
Prepending LC_ALL=C :
$ LC_ALL=C svn info | awk '/Revision/{r=$2}/Date/{gsub(/-/,"");d=$4}END{print d"."r}'

Marcel_K commented on 2017-01-18 23:47

Much better now, only not all instances of $srcdir and $pkgdir are enclosed within double quotes, which is necessary per spec to allow AUR users to have directories containing spaces.

Marcel_K commented on 2016-11-30 23:09

A year and a half ago I asked: "Why not let makepkg do the checkout of the Subversion repository?" You still do this manually. Moreover, you do not enclose instances of $srcdir and $pkgdir within double quotes. Those are at least the things that should be fixed. And since the appearance of hooks in pacman, you don't need the install file anymore, which is not complete anyway.

jnbek commented on 2016-11-30 17:04

@Scimmia, it's not working still? all seems ok over here... o_O

Scimmia commented on 2016-11-26 00:00

jnbek, things have been settled a long time, this PKGBUILD really, really needs fixed.

jnbek commented on 2015-07-16 20:45

Sourceforge is reporting:

The website is temporarily in static offline mode.
Only a very limited set of project pages are available until the main website returns to service.

this is an upstream problem that will resolve itself eventually.

Can't make package

svn: E000111: Unable to connect to a repository at URL ''

jnbek commented on 2015-06-18 00:20

@Marcel_K, I'll take care of it once things are better settled with the aur4 migration.

Marcel_K commented on 2015-06-17 22:09

Why not let makepkg do the checkout of the Subversion repository?

Shanto commented on 2013-08-21 20:08 changed its SVN server's URL layout. Fixed and updated.

Trilby commented on 2013-08-21 13:31

The below error is due to the wrong source path provided to the install commands. This can be patched by simply prepending "Macbuntu/fonts/" to the three font paths. However, this pkgbuild needs other revision. This draws on svn sources, so it should be named ttf-mac-fonts-svn. Since makepkg 4.0, makepkg will handle downloading the svn source. And the other source (license) should always have been handled by makepkg rather than using wget in a package function.

A revised PKGBUILD that addresses these issues can be found here:

viniavila commented on 2013-04-24 13:27


the command "fc-cache -vf" needs to be in the .install file, and this have to be added together this PKGBUILD because it doesn't need to be called after building/packaging the package, but only during installing/uninstalling...

The correct is create a .install file (/usr/share/pacmam/proto.install has a model) and put the fc-cache -vf inside the funcions post_install and post_remove... I'm not sure but I think it's necessary add execute permission to .install after create it and before package with makepkg --source.

Don't forget to add this line --> install='xxxx.install' to the PKGBUILD

bluerider commented on 2013-04-23 16:49

Please modify the package build to use "install -m644" for all font files and the license (so the fonts are not executable). In addition please add "fc-cache -vf" after installation of fonts to update the font cache.

roukoswarf commented on 2013-04-15 03:15

Please remove depreciated functions from PKGBUILD and use package(), would not want this package to break.

SourceForge SVN seems to be down now too.

Shanto commented on 2011-05-25 21:52

Updated package with links to SourceForge SVN.

Shanto commented on 2011-05-17 18:59

Seems to be down for me too. Get it from for now.

I will also see if I can manage to have this PKGBUILD download from one of the official channels.
