@Marcel_K: I've uploaded the PKGBUILD as you provided, looks good and thank you once again for your invaluable feedback.

@Marcel_K okay then! :P

@reflexing: it's simple: I do not have a copy of Windows 8.1, only XP and 7.

reflexing commented on 2014-03-25 05:38

@jnbek but… but my package builds fine too!

jnbek commented on 2014-03-24 22:33

pfft, this one builds, that's why :-P

@Marcel_K why bother with Vista fonts when you can use 8.1 fonts ( There are huge versions bump, and you're gonna violate EULA anyway :)

Marcel_K commented on 2014-03-23 20:31

BTW, you don't have to first rename the file eula to license.txt, then create a directory in $pkgdir and then copy the file. You can do this all in one step, see the last line (before }) in the updated PKGBUILD.

Moreover, the license file doesn't need to be named license.txt. In fact, most of the license files on my system are called LICENSE. You can even safely name it EULA (as the original file in PPV.exe was called), namcap won't complain.

@Marcel_K: thanks, I'll take a look at it this evening. I appreciate the feedback.

Some other suggestions for improving the PKGBUILD here:

1. Please enclose all instances with double quotes to allow for spaces in directory names.
2. You can use the --filter option (or -F) to cabextract to only extract *.tt[fc] files.
3. There is a bug somewhere that prevents selection of Cambria Regular in LibreOffice. Converting cambria.ttc to cambria.ttf using FontForge resolves this issue (kudos to Martin Schmölzer who put this in the PKGBUILD of ttf-win7-fonts).

As a test I implemented all these steps in a new PKGBUILD (it works correctly) and put it on

hmm, I wonder how my last comment got deleted... I got your email reflexer, but yea, it's cool :D I needed to do a few things with this package anyway to fix some namcap spew. Enjoy :D
