If you're using Pentaho Data Integration Tools (PDI) ,, which uses Helvetica in the splash screen, this package will crash the startup process, without explanation.

Looks like the file was removed from their FTP site.

I just used some mirror. Good thing we have a checksum.

Might want to up that to sha256 now that we have to use potentially unsafe mirrors.
