@Lenry You can replace the base url in $_dlpath to the base of a mirror that works for you. Unfortunately we won't be able to do that for the package itself. It's specifically against Arch's guidelines to hard code a specific mirror. The Sourceforge redirections work for most locations/situations and are better than pointing at one mirror.

For me it's trying to download from a non-working mirror (Liquid Telecom of Kenya) If I choose an other mirror from the website, I can download the files, but I can't figure out how to define a mirror in the PKGBUILD

It might be a problem with SourceForge, but currently the font download keeps timing out.

@MuLDeRiZed or @merlock can you elaborate on that? If there is something this package should add like a conflicts=() I'd like to know about it.

caleb commented on 2020-05-25 15:03

Please do not depend on any of fontconfig, xorg-font-utils, or xorg-font-encodings. These are all obsolete and make the system do duplicate work as well as make container builds heavier than they need to be.

@chennux: I tried with old PKGBUILD and it works.

Fonts are downloaded flawlessly.

The link of the fonts was modified ; fonts are now here : http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/corefonts/the%20fonts/final/

Currently, we must modify the PKGBUILD in order to complete the installation of the fonts.

(The Ubuntu package has a similar bug).

@MuLDeRiZeD: Good catch. Wondered why some of my glyphs wouldn't show right.

MuLDeRiZeD commented on 2019-08-28 13:28

Avoid if you are using awesome fonts. There is a problem with several glyphs not being recognized when both sets are installed.

Are these dependencies really needed? I have installed multiple other ttf fonts and they don't require them.
