PSA: I've started hosting this as a prebuilt package in my repository for those that want to install it using pacman without messing around with building from the AUR.

Or better yet, switch to font-manager-svn

Unless you absolutely need one of the features that hasn't been implemented yet.

@biloky Is this package still being maintained? I am unable to install fonts from an archive getting command not found error. I am pretty sure this has to do with the fact that I use Nemo and do not have Nautilus installed. Just wanted to give the heads up. Also the patch in the previous post is definitely needed! THANKS!

i_magnific0 commented on 2013-01-31 08:09

The location for the config file (~/.fonts.conf) is deprecated, it is suggested to use ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf instead. I created a patch for this purpose, as well as modified your PKGBUILD.


Thanks for maintaining!
