I have updated this PKG to v2.1.0: you need to uninstall any previous version(s) as I've done some breaking changes to the PKG. I had to rewrite the PKGBUILD because it was using a different repo/tarball instead of the official one.

  • Please note the tarball is around ~2GB (2298M), you may have to download this first using wget as GitHub doesn't offer resume download support.

  • See @sylphio patch as possible workaround when dealing with download problems.

This is how one may build this package:

$ cd ~/Downloads (you need ~4GB of space to build)
$ yay --getpkgbuild nerd-fonts-complete (or git clone
$ cd nerd-fonts-complete
$ wget -O nerd-fonts-2.1.0.tar.gz
$ makepkg -sci BUILDDIR=.

If something is missing and/or broken, please let me know.

I have put back the scripts, please report back if it works OK now. :)

All is well now. Thanks for the quick fix.

Please try adjusting your aria2 settings and download again

Tried many already, all fail. aria2 supports resumed downloads by default.

@pepper_chico I don't have any problems downloading, maybe because I don't use any helper. Please try adjusting your aria2 settings and download again. The previous tarball URL wasn't using the official one, I don't recommend using any different repo than the official one.

@podiki @all I have changed back the path to /usr/share/fonts/nerd-fonts-complete/ and fixed the typo's, sorry for that! The font cache should automatically update nowadays, that's why I didn't include the .install anymore. Please try and report back if the problems are gone.

@ruro Thanks for reporting it. I have put back the scripts, please report back if it works OK now. :)

yay uses curl with resume support and fails. I've attempted download from github url many times with aria2c, which imo is one of the best download manager for resuming, it simply doesn't work. I'm not trying another. Notice that this problem is also referred on upstream issue tracker:

From what I can see github isn't behaving well for this kind of download, so your update to the package is breaking installations due to relying on broken service, that works on your machine, but not on others.

podiki commented on 2020-03-21 22:33

Paths have changed (purposefully?):

  1. install changed to /usr/share/fonts/nerd-fonts from /usr/share/tons/nerd-fonts-complete

  2. typo of TTF becoming TFF

Not sure if this caused issues with fonts not being found, though would think it shouldn't matter. Could be on my end with some cache not being updated (for stumpwm, Lisp). Update: yes, had to update ttf cache for clx-truetype/xft

@francoism90 They are needed to avoid hardcoding specific codepoints for the glyphs

Also, and you just broke my shell & vim lol

francoism90 commented on 2020-03-21 20:10

@ruro I did remove the scripts from the installer.. are they needed and why? If so, I can put them back. :)

@pepper_chico Weird, it downloads fine for me over here, on 30 mbits it should take over 15 min. I really recommend to grab the official repo tarball or try an other download manager if it keeps failing.

ruro commented on 2020-03-21 15:50

@francoism90 The scripts in bin/scripts/lib/ (,,, etc) used to be installed under /usr/lib/nerd-fonts-complete/* now they are apparently not installed at all?

pepper_chico commented on 2020-03-21 13:22

@mckean, I did already have tried aria2c for resuming, it didn't work either (with aria2c, once it fails, it starts from beginning, and keeps looping). I'm on 30MB connection, download speed is on limit of my connection.
