Please do not report installation problems with AUR font packages here! I do not maintain them, if you want it fixed, report it to the respective maintainers.

I'm aware that Sorkin has set up but my understanding is we shouldn't expect anything to be uploaded there until sometime in 2018.

Why not use the much older (incomplete) version of Gelasio that's up at the googlefont's repo for now?

@Jristz Sorkin has set up an empty GitHub repository for Gelasio, and if there's ever any activity on it, I'll have a reliable place to pull the font from, create a package, and change the dependency on this metapackage to ttf-gelasio.

Fingers crossed. But until then, that ttf-gelasio-ib dependency is there for anyone who still has the old infinality repo package lying around, because hey, that technically satisfies that dependency. Failing that, the TTF files are floating around the internet if you want to just stick them in /usr/share/fonts/TTF/. Not an ideal solution, I know.

Why not change the ttf-gelasio-ib to ttf-gelasio?
also why there is not an font-meta-extended version?

I contacted Eben Sorking regarding Gelasio and I got a response, quite quickly in fact! Here’s the reply:

“Gelasio was not a complete or finished project; hence my reticence but… sometime in the next month I could probably do a new build with the new TTFA hinting and send you that. Sometime in the next year a full 1.0 version may be made and pushed out to Github for people to make use of.”

@cryzed: sorry, I do not have a lot of time for experimenting at the moment, but I’ll be happy to try out once I got the opportunity.

@DoctorJellyface I got some suggestions from an user called auscompgeek in the gist's comments:


I tried this and it seems to work well for me. The configuration files seem more canonical (since "prefer" is used instead of "assign") and more complete, since they are exactly the font aliases Infinality's fontconfig was using.

Currently I have activated the following configuration files and disabled 30-infinality-aliases.conf:

* conf.avail.infinality/free/30-metric-aliases-free.conf
* conf.avail.infinality/free/37-repl-global-free.conf
* conf.avail.infinality/37-repl-webfonts.conf
* conf.avail.infinality/free/60-latin-free.conf
* conf.avail.infinality/free/65-non-latin-free.conf
* conf.avail.infinality/free/66-aliases-wine-free.conf
* conf.avail.infinality/67-override-aliases.conf

It should be noted that I have ttf-dejavu installed, which places some symlinks into /etc/fonts/conf.d, everything starting with "57-dejavu-*". It overrides some of the settings made in conf.avail.infinality/free/60-latin-free.conf, seemingly (I think because of the "default" instruction?). To prevent this, I decided to also symlink conf.avail.infinality/free/60-latin-free.conf to /etc/fonts/local.conf.

Could you do me a favor and try this on your end as well? If it looks good to you too, it might be preferable to simply install the "conf.avail.infinality" folder into /etc/fonts/ and then adapt the guide to link the configuration files mentioned above.

For the time being, you can still get the bohoomil font packages from here:

FYI everyone, is down so the two optional deps t1-cursor-ib and ttf-gelasio-ib can't be installed.
