If you use the url for the source, it works fine.

Unflagged because I don't have any problem downloading the source. Please try again.

Sorry for not including Open Sans Condensed in the previous release.

@marcvangend: I've uploaded a new version. TTFs in this package are downloaded from Google Font Directory repository and repackaged as a tarball. It seems to have fixed the issue. Actually I've never noticed it, and thanks a lot for pointing it out.

I don't know exactly what's wrong, but I experienced a strange bug.

With this package installed, the Chromium browser could not display the light and semi-bold variants of the font when they appear in a web site imported from the Google Web Fonts service ( The "light" font looked just like the "normal" weight, but with slightly stronger anti-aliasing. The "semi-bold" weight rendered more bold than "bold", almost like "extra bold".

Removing the package and rebooting solved the problem.

@jkcdarunday: The md5 of this file changes every time you download it. That's why I repackaged a tarball on my own server in the first time. :-P

Is it not more acceptable for the PKGBUILD to link to the original source?

Thanks for the quick update, @hexchain. Working fine.

Updated to include OpenSans Condensed and OpenSans Hebrew (Condensed). Thanks to @Markus00000

Have you thought about including Open Sans Condensed in the package? Or would that better be a separate package?
