Oh I see your point. The pkgver() is probably there because it was previously fetching from git. Changed to fixed pkgver now.

Please. I repeat my request - don't use a dynamic pkgver().

pkgver() is meant to bump version controlled packages that change often - to notify people that the upstream package has changed.

It's not meant to dynamically assign a version at install date, even if you can do that, there should be a good reason.

No other AUR packages (that I've ever installed) do that. Why is this package? What is the purpose?

The message is just a reminder

A reminder of what? I want to be informed when the package changes, not every time I update. These messages are spam and totally unnecessary.

It distracts my attention from other important messages. Please delete it.

This is the intended mechanism of pkgver(). The message is just a reminder and can be safely ignored.

bhrgunatha commented on 2022-05-12 11:05 (UTC)

Please make pkgver and pkgver() the same value.

e.g if I installed it today yay will tell me the installed package - 20220512-1 - from pkgver() function - is newer than AUR version 20210727-1 - from pkgver variable.

@laichiaheng 你可以使用全字庫字型,包含的字比較多

@laichiaheng: what don't you use 里 instead? Anyway, I wanted to check, and it seems that only KAI is missing 裏, while the SONG version has it. Checking at the font files directly, and I can see that: - few elements are in KAI, but not in SONG; - numerous elements are in SONG, but not in KAI. With a small script, I came up with this: Missing from SONG: ˉЁДЕЖЗИЙКЛМУФХЦЧШЩЪЫЬЭЮЯабвгдежзийклмнопрстуфхцчшщъыьэюяё①②③④⑤⑥⑦⑧⑨⑩⑴⑵⑶⑷⑸⑹⑺⑻⑼⑽々᐀‵╴〈〉《》「」『』【】〔〕〝〞﹏﹐﹑﹒﹔﹕﹖﹗﹙﹚﹛﹜﹝﹞"'()[]`{} Missing from KAI (many):

Thanks felix.s for pointing that out. Updated accordingly :)

Font cache updating is done via a pacman hook now. I think you can drop the install file and all the dependencies. And git is a makedepends, not depends.

@fstirlitz: Thank you for the update. It has been updated as you requested.

felix.s commented on 2014-04-13 13:19 (UTC)

The PKGBUILD does a few things wrong. Can you just replace it with the following?

Jiehong commented on 2013-07-14 08:14 (UTC)

@flamusdiu: Thanks for the warning. Update done.

flamusdiu commented on 2013-07-04 18:53 (UTC)

@Jiehong: ==> WARNING: Using a PKGBUILD without a package() function is deprecated. Need to update your PKGBUILD file to the proper specs.

Jiehong commented on 2013-07-03 17:05 (UTC)

@justion8: thanks for your comment. Changed done.

justin8 commented on 2013-07-03 09:34 (UTC)

Can you please make arch='any' instead. As it is only using common utilities available on all architectures and it is a font. Tested on armv6h and armv7 to work fine.

According to, the latest fonts are the one my link pointed to… Those links often changes and break, so I've made a repo oh Github to store them for sure. I would update them there if needed. eduSong_Unicode.ttf and edusong_v2_unicode.ttf are the same, some I don't really understand why they are named differently. kai-pc.ttf is supposed to be an old version of edukai-3.ttf…

cuihao commented on 2013-01-03 14:48 (UTC)

Broken link. And I found 2 different font: May be the second one named "v2" is a newer version?
