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.

@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!

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!

@jperry: Removing the font-manager's cache will do the trick.

# rm ~/.cache/font-manager/font-manager.cache

Running fails with the following error:

ImportError: No module named _bsddb

I installed python2-bsddb but this didn't solve the problem. Thanks.
