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 ''

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

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.

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.

Getting error in build()

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.
