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.

To mimick the original "ibfonts-meta-extended-lt", theres a few fonts missing.

"ttf-liberastika" is available on aur.

"t1-bh-ib" which provides the Luxi font already have ttf replacement on arch extra repos: "font-bh-ttf".

"t1-cursor-ib" font is already included on "xorg-fonts-misc"

Guess the only fonts really missing are Gelasio and t1-urw-fonts-ib.

If you want, here is the diff for the changes:

And done. I completely forgot about it at the time. If I ever say I'll do it in a moment, never believe me.

@CommodoreCrunch thanks! Only heard about that this morning and I didn't have a chance to update the package until now, it should be done within several minutes.

@Awesome_Donkey I'm afraid you'll have to contact it’s maintainer for that.

Right now it's failing to verify the integrity of ttf-courier-prime, thus the build fails. Using pacaur.

@CommodoreCrunch Very awesome! So the only -ib packages we still need to depend on are t1-cursor-ib, ttf-gelasio-ib and ttf-heuristica-ib, it seems.

Mmkay, there. Now that I've slept, I've added the other four I know to exist. There are now packages for ttf-oswald, ttf-signika, ttf-merriweather, and ttf-merriweather-sans.

@eigengrau That local.conf was also me. This font thing has been driving me nuts.

I have no idea if you could/should drop that entire config into the package though. Partly because most users would still have some of those fonts missing and partly because the configuration may not be what everyone wants, particularly that <match> section at the top, which I pasted from cryzed's method of replicating infinality. Some people might just be here for a collection of fonts.

I think the better option would be to put that config in the wiki somewhere.

Another user assembled infinality-bundle’s font substitutions to be used in /etc/fonts/local.conf.


Would it make sense shipping them in these meta-packages (possibly to conf.avail)?

Lastly, some of the font packages only ship config to conf.avail, but don’t enable it. Depending on whether you want these to serve as drop-in replacement packages for infinality-bundle users, it might make sense packaging the respective symlinks for conf.d here.

Thanks for making the meta-packages!

Google appears to have at least five of the missing fonts in their GitHub repository. I've added Quintessential as my very first AUR package if anyone's interested. I'd add more but it's currently approaching 3 AM.
