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.

@escondida By the way if this migrates I think it would be a good idea to rename the pkgbase to libertinus-font and set it up to be a split package with otf-libertinus as the first (and currently only) pkgname. The project dropped the TTF variant at one point, but it looks like there are some reasons to bring it back as an optional alternative, so there may very well be a reason to add a ttf-libertinus split package soon. It would be better to do that with normalized package naming. I've been doing this for most of the AUR font packages I maintain. If you'd like me to set it up for this one before you migrate I can do that.

@escondida Sure, I'd be happy to see this move to [community]. In fact I've offered before to migrate and help maintain it there but haven't found anyone to bite on sponsoring me as a TM yet ;-)

And yes the original Linux Libertine project is unmaintained and has been for years. Libertinus is not a 100% drop in replacement because some metrics have been changed that could cause layout changes when blindly swapping fonts, but also lots and lots of bugs have been fixed and the changes should be for the better for all users except those with old document layouts to perfectly preserve.

caleb, thanks for maintaining libertinus! Would you have any objection to my moving it to [community], since it seems to be the de facto successor to Linux Libertine? (Libertine isn't going away anytime soon, but upstream seems to have lost interest.)

Hi caleb,

as I have switched my last Arch Linux machine to Fedora recently, I decided to step down from my AUR maintainerships, including otf-libertinus.

Best, jmaibaum/jmx

Thanks for packaging this updated version of Linux Libertine. But, to be useful, may I recommend adding a file? Wikipedia expects "Libertine Serif" for the page headers, so add /etc/fonts/conf.avail/61-libertinus.conf and put inside it:

https://pastebin.com/Mg9uSsrH

Then add the symlink to /etc/fonts/conf.d/:

install -Dm644 -t "$pkgdir/etc/fonts/conf.avail" 61-libertinus.conf
install -d "$pkgdir/etc/fonts/conf.d"
ln -s "../conf.avail/61-libertinus.conf" "$pkgdir/etc/fonts/conf.d/61-libertinus.conf"

And that should be all. Thanks!
