@ronjouch: It was an intended configuration option set by the upstream developer, for reasons detailed in the readme. I hadn't realised the font was now the required dependency of another package, so the default configuration is no longer suitable.

This font caused a very strange, progressive degradation of apps to use my system's default/fallback font, which I incorrectly reported as a harfbuzz bug at

Is this a bug or known issue due to some misconfiguration of mine?
- If a known issue, could the package warn about it and provide sanity check recommendations?
- If it's a bug, is it a packaging bug, or should I report it upstream?

The dependency ttf-bitstream-vera breaks font-config for me. It takes me quite a lot of time to locate the cause.

there is a ttf-emojione-color which work perfect under infinality-bundle

morealaz commented on 2016-08-01 16:44

I think ttf-bitstream-vera must be optional and also creating sym link to conf file.
I use infinality-bundle and current configuration break my font config.

Ahh there we go, ttf-symbola also collides with this font of course.

a little information,
these fonts break fonts of Mathematica. To restore Mathematica just remove them.
Hope this information help someone.

Font creator here. A few notes for Arch users:

1. DejaVu is the default for every Linux distribution I've tested. The provided fontconfig doesn't specifically do anything with DejaVu. @veyen I've updated the documentation due to your concern about DejaVu being the fallback.
2. Bitstream Vera is the only standard Linux font family I've found that doesn't conflict with the Unicode Emoji set. It would be great if someone can convince Noto, Liberation, DejaVu, etc to be Unicode Emoji compatible. 0x2639 and 0x293a are good code points to check for compatibility because they are old code points added to the newer emoji set. No, sorry, you can't blacklist glyphs in a fontconfig, it's an ancient feature request if someone wants to implement it though.
3. Roboto, Roboto Slab, and Inconsolata (or your favorite monospace font) also works well. Roboto Slab is a manual install for most people. Just install the provided config and modify to set your preferred fonts.
4. Edgemaster has the package installing the fontconfig at 35 priority, so it runs before user configs at 50 on most systems. Many existing custom ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf will override it.
5. You can make your preferred serif, sans-serif, and monospace fonts be emoji-compatible by manually subsetting the fonts to remove the conflicting characters using the script in Nototools. I'd like to add a howto about the process to the readme.

@veyen: Good point. ttf-bitstream-vera is recommended by the font developer to set as system default instead of dejavu due to various compatibility issues.

At present, I've not had the opportunity to experiment to see how these bugs interact with Arch's default font configuration.

I've just pushed pkgrel=3 to make this font dependency optional.

veyen commented on 2016-03-21 14:16

Can you designate ttf-bitstream-vera as optional?

It is not necessary to use the font itself.
