@ginlu: correct on all counts. (Although if I remember correctly, the _texmf_root variable wasn't there for making it shorter, but because at some point there was some confusion about where it should be installed, so I put it there for making it easier to change.)

There is for sure one serious problem, line at the end starts with:

rm -rf $pkgdir

now imagine, what if someone have space in his build directory - you can remove some of his files without asking. You should enclose all references to src/pkgdir in quotes like

rm -rf "$pkgdir"

Also, the .maps file is included in source list, but isn't installed - check first 2 lines of build of example package in my previous comment. Finally, I believe that if you set


your "install" lines would become even shorter, because now every time you use your _texmf_root like $pkgdir/$_texmf_root/texmf

@giniu: OK, I've tried. I hope it works now. Let me know if there's any problem. Thanks.

Hi there, can you please provide .maps file so the font gets automatically enabled on new TeXLive? Check for example

@AsmundEr: Fixed, thanks.

There is an error in the .install file, when it calls updmap-sys, the syntax is wrong:
/usr/bin/updmap-sys --quiet --enable Map
should be
/usr/bin/updmap-sys --quiet --enable
(the = sign is missing). This is with the newest Texlive 2011, maybe the syntax has changed.

bender02: Please bump the pkgrel next time you update this PKGBUILD... (I'm referring to your update back in April.)

I see that this package puts the font in /usr/share/texmf tree while all my other type1 fonts sit in /usr/share/texmf-dist. Is this intentional?

The webpage at ctan lists another one, so I used that (
