@AlfredoRamos There's still another typo. It should be "PT Sans Expert", not "PT San Expert".

AlfredoRamos commented on 2021-08-11 20:00 (UTC)

@ironborn Fixed.

Is there a typo in 54-paratype.conf? Font name is mistyped

    <family>PT San Experts</family>

AlfredoRamos commented on 2021-08-04 16:52 (UTC)

@temnyk I didn't see the announcement, but I guess it needs to be changed.

I've updated the package, thanks for the report.

temnyk commented on 2021-08-03 10:13 (UTC)

Shouldn't 54-paratype.conf be placed into /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/instead of /etc/fonts/conf.avail/? Since conf.avail has been moved according to this

ioctl commented on 2020-08-21 08:53 (UTC)

@AlfredoRamos please add fontconfig file. Here is an updated package repo:

Please retire md5 checksums and use pacman's hook for updating font cache.

commented on 2016-12-14 23:56 (UTC)

Yeah, but now three packages instead of one (or five, depends what splitting you prefer).

reflexing commented on 2016-12-14 14:57 (UTC)

Well, the problem solved itself!

Hi! Paratype have created two more OFL fonts for Astra Linux to substitute Times New Roman: Could you add them to the package, too? Direct links:

@eugene2k done. Link 49-ttf-paratype.conf from conf.avail to conf.d

eugene2k commented on 2016-01-14 15:21 (UTC)

The fonts in this package aren't properly classified as serif/sans-serif/monospace and as such won't be selected when the user chooses a serif/sans-serif/monospace font. Please consider adding a configuration file to /etc/fontconfig/conf.d/ with the following contents: <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd"> <fontconfig> <alias> <family>monospace</family> <prefer><family>PT Mono</family></prefer> </alias> <alias> <family>serif</family> <prefer><family>PT Serif</family></prefer> </alias> <alias> <family>sans-serif</family> <prefer><family>PT Sans</family></prefer> </alias> </fontconfig>

dront78 commented on 2014-10-07 11:37 (UTC)

please update and checksums

reflexing commented on 2013-11-14 18:15 (UTC)

@intelfx thx

intelfx commented on 2013-11-14 15:53 (UTC)

Hi! Use of build() function instead of package() is deprecated since pacman 4.1; please consider updating your package. For your convenience:

Sorry, forget about it. :)

There is no reason to post full PKGBUILD. Information about changed font files would have been enough. :)

commented on 2012-07-10 13:22 (UTC)

pumbur commented on 2012-03-25 11:00 (UTC)

i have problems with (yaourt / makepkg / source-cache) different versions of font files named the same ( for any version instead of somthing like makepkg with enabled source-cache save all downloaded files to one directory by their original names; and with new version of package trying to use file of old version, checksum-error as result. i added this to bugtracker ( but if it will not be fixed for the next version of fonts, please change syntax like this: source=('PTSerifOFL_${pkgver}.zip::' 'PTSansOFL_${pkgver}.zip::' 'PTMonoOFL_${pkgver}.zip::')

commented on 2012-02-22 10:35 (UTC)

Thank You. Looks like they have updated Mono version.

dront78 commented on 2012-02-21 20:52 (UTC)

yes update checksums please

pumbur commented on 2011-12-30 16:50 (UTC)

mono here

> Is install script (with fc-cache) not really needed? Seems it is not absolutely necessary, but it is better to add it. Updated package.

onestep_ua commented on 2011-11-09 07:05 (UTC)

Thank you. :) P.S. Is install script (with fc-cache) not really needed? I noticed it is present in latest official font packages like cantarell-fonts.

commented on 2011-02-03 10:52 (UTC)

You are right. Fixed.

commented on 2011-02-03 04:55 (UTC)

I think, It would be better (more friendly) to provide link to english version of page:

commented on 2011-01-15 22:27 (UTC)

Package was orphaned, so I suppose to redo it myself. :) Also changed versioning to font publication date.

commented on 2011-01-12 21:44 (UTC)

Can You insert "chmod a-x" on all extracted files from zip? Or copy them with install with apropriate flags?

commented on 2010-12-30 03:07 (UTC)

good news everyone! :)
