@xangelux please take a look at lrm's latest comment. Is this the case with you too?

@jstjohn it's the version number that is important here (libarchive>=3.0.2). So, just to be safe, I will keep this for some more time.

All of the checksums pass for me.

Delete your src dir (e.g. "rm -rf /path/to/your/aur/ttf-ms-fonts/src") and run 'makepkg -s' again.

@birdflesh, because libarchive is a dependency of pacman, you can safely remove the makedepends array from the PKGBUILD

checksum does fail

lrm commented on 2013-01-22 21:01

Please disregard my out of date flag. My error. The download was failing due to bad flags in the makepkg DLAGENT (not following redirects). The package is fine. My apologies.

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-22 16:41

No such problem here. Please avoid flagging packages without a reason.

lrm commented on 2013-01-22 16:28

Failing checksum verification.

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-12 10:05

It will be added as soon as font packages in extra have it too. Thanks.

How about adding provides=('ttf-font')?


birdflesh commented on 2012-04-25 13:32

This *could* be considered as an option if ms-fonts were installed in a separate folder. Since they are installed in /usr/share/fonts/TTF I guess we have to stick with what arch recommends for ttf fonts packages install scripts.

There are some problems with encodings other than UTF-8. For example, in some applications using these fonts in cp-1251 encoding, you might lose Russian symbols after each update of ttf-ms-fonts - these symbols would transform 'glyphs'.
One have to manually issue the following commands to fix this:

cd /usr/share/fonts/TTF
sudo mkfontscale -a microsoft-cp1251
sudo mkfontdir

Please consider inserting these or similar commands in post-install script for them to be executed automatically on update.
