Damn! I even double checked the installation for any messages to make sure there isn't one to prevent a silly post. But after your paste I tried again and hocus pocus, I see it too. Well at least I know that the way I have been looking for post installation messages was the right one, but I'm still confused how I managed to overlook this message two times. Thanks everybody for your feedback and sorry for any inconvenience!

No need to get hostile. It is the Arch Way not to put a default symlink in conf.d or to automatically run the script. That was not what I was suggesting and in my opinion this should not be implemented.

What I ran into was the fact that I didn't see a post install or upgrade message when installing infinality. How and when should I had read it? When did I miss it? If it is a file I have to look up myself --and possibly this is the default method for many AUR packages out there-- how have I managed these past few years :P without reading these messages. Help me out here.

Please no symlink; that's not the Arch way. And some users might want to stick with local.conf.
As you said, users _should_ read install msg.

@Shanto: If somebody decided to install unsupported package, he knows what he's doing. He decided to install it _already_, so he want it working immediately, doesn't he?

Messages about /etc/profile.d/ and /etc/fonts/conf.avail/52-infinality.conf are there in post_install/post_upgrade. If you didn't watch that's not my fault - I don't think I have much to do there.

How many of you would like this package to put symlink inside /etc/fonts/cond.d by default? If I get enough number of positive opinion, I will consider doing so. (I personally prefer that but I want to respect majority opinion here.)

I agree with cstadegaart, in my opinion a link to conf.d should be a default option.

I didn't get a post-installation message (or I wasn't watching the right monitor) for running /etc/profile.d/ and linking /etc/fonts/conf.avail/52-infinality.conf to ../conf.d/. Would be helpful for people who don't know how to configure the infinality patch properly.

"~/.Xresources" is not needed any more.
