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

reflexing commented on 2016-12-14 14:57

Well, the problem solved itself!

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

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

eugene2k commented on 2016-01-14 15:21

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">
<prefer><family>PT Mono</family></prefer>
<prefer><family>PT Serif</family></prefer>
<prefer><family>PT Sans</family></prefer>

@intelfx do you want me to add you as contributor?

reflexing commented on 2013-11-14 18:15

@intelfx thx

intelfx commented on 2013-11-14 15:53

Use of build() function instead of package() is deprecated since pacman 4.1; please consider updating your package.

For your convenience:

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

Anonymous comment on 2012-07-10 13:22

Here is a working PKGBUILD:

pkgdesc='Font family by ParaType: sans, serif, mono, extended cyrillic and latin, OFL license.'
depends=('fontconfig' 'xorg-fonts-encodings')

build() {
cd "$srcdir"

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/"
install -m 644 PTSansPTSerifOFL.txt "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/"

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF/"
install -m 644 *.ttf "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF/"

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:

Thank You. Looks like they have updated Mono version.

dront78 commented on 2012-02-21 20:52

> 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

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.

Anonymous comment on 2011-02-03 10:52

You are right. Fixed.

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

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

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-12 21:44

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