What is the difference between this and all the other ttf-iosevka-* packages?
There description is identical. Is there a (brief) overview as to what is what?

@sballert Where did you get your checksum from?

$ wget
$ sha256sum

This is the same checksum as in the PKGBUILD.

New sha256sum of the file:

License text was changed again.
This package needs an update.

@Markus00000 I'm glad I was able to help. :)

@scottmada Thanks for your excellent help, I’ve updated all packages.

scottmada commented on 2016-06-09 04:37

A commit on master ( breaks the package.

LICENSE was updated and renamed

There is no license file in the downloaded file as I thought, but the file is available with the tag version.

===HOW TO FIX===
Replace LICENSE url to "" in the PKGBUILD file.

It works, but the name must be changed for next releases.

@Markus00000 Thanks for your answer.
It's my pleasure to give some suggestions that help.

Seems like I should learn more from the Infinality packages about fonts.

@ljxfstorm You are right about the `force` option. In the past it seemed necessary ( I just tried this without `force` and the cache was correctly updated.

When `force` was still required, a separate directory made it simple to only update the cache in `post_installation()` for the newly installed fonts: `fc-cache -f /usr/share/fonts/${pkgname}` Without `force` the cache update should be faster even without a separate directory.

`mkfontscale` and `mkfontdir` are for old applications ( I have no idea if their removal would affect anyone. Other popular fonts still use them (e.g. ttf-roboto).

@Markus00000 Actually, I have no idea about the advantages and disadvantages between them.
But I think the family name way is preferred than the TTF way according to the wiki (
It's a better way to manage fonts when I was too lazy to build a package.
P.S. the "force" option of "fc-cache" may be unnecessary and cause lag. Even the two "mkfont*" command could be removed.

I'd like to discuss more. :)
