Besides all the downloads having moved to a different filename scheme, the upstream is aggressively blocking non-browser downloads. If anybody knows how to make a curl work for these files let me know and I'll get it setup here. Note for example the one source currently listed works fine from a browser but not from curl.

@alerque what about reupload in github ?? no one cares about where the file is getting downloaded ?? and isnt working package better than not working package ??

@zoorat Please see previous comments, there are known issues with the download(s) in this package. I'm happy to fix it if anybody finds an alternative (that doesn't involve hacking their own browser session into a CURL request). Just re-pointing out the same problem doesn't help much.

I have been able to make it work with this,

DLAGENTS=("https::/usr/bin/curl -b '__cfduid=db393f5640a42541d09fb496e44eb58dd1611209318;\ csrftoken=4ea5c8xVjINrZG36JaFXre8gHL845obvuIwZgUfY8t9kcFT63CPamDgpYokMzQlJ;\ sessionid=lax0bk5w8xgc0wsu1ktpr8xhzk2uz01o' -A Mozilla/5.0\ (Windows\ NT\ 10.0\;\ rv\:78.0)\ Gecko/20100101\ Firefox/78.0 -fC - -o %o %u")

I opened the url once in a browser and copied the cookie set by the server. Then, I set this cookie in each request. Make sure to properly escape the spaces in the cookie.

And just Mozilla for the UA header didn't seem to work so I also copied UA header from my browser. Again, Properly escaped and then it just worked. :)

It's not a good general solution for this but it might be helpful in case someone just needs to install this package.

@librewish Did you want to help maintain this? I'd be happy to add you ... especially if you know of a working download URL / Curl command combo that works.

alerque commented on 2020-09-11 11:03

@vishvas Those fonts are from a different source and should be placed in a different package.

Also, there seems to be an error: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading http://www.devanagarifonts.net/fonts/download/Aakar-Regular.zip Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build ttf-devanagarifonts. ==> Restart building ttf-devanagarifonts ?

Hi!

Can you please include fonts from http://svayambhava.blogspot.com/p/siddhanta-devanagariunicode-open-type.html : Siddhanta, Chandas, Uttara - very useful for Sanskrit rendering. Also Sanskrit 2003 from https://www.oah.in/Sanskrit/itranslator2003.htm#dls ?
