The "file truncated" failures arise because of multi-process make; for some reason, this project's Makefile setup fails if make is running more than one process in parallel. This can be fixed by specifying that make use a single process (e.g. by editing the PKGBUILD to have make -j 1, etc.)

I did also have to add the --without-doc flag to configure (as @undu mentions below) to avoid a separate error with the Makefile.

wbthomason commented on 2019-11-24 23:10 times out for me when I try to build this package. The below change makes the download work for me:


However, I get the same error as @Althorion below while building. Was that issue ever solved?

Is noto-fonts-alpha depend for the package?

Fails to build with following errors:

/usr/bin/ld: ttfautohintGUI-maingui.o: file not recognized: file truncated
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Any advice?

please add help2man as makedep

Why is noto-fonts-alpha needed? Is it only a makedepends as mentioned below?

Here's the PKGBUILD I'm using to build it without docs:

I had this error, using pandoc 2.2.1, and with

/bin/sh ./ ttfautohint-1.pandoc ttfautohint-2.pandoc ttfautohint-3.pandoc ttfautohint-4.pandoc ../NEWS > ttfautohint.txt
pandoc --smart \
            --template=./template.html \
            --default-image-extension=".svg" \
            --variable="version:1.8.1" \
            --toc \
            --include-in-header=./ttfautohint-css.html \
            --include-in-header=./ttfautohint-js.html \
            --standalone \
            --output=ttfautohint.html ttfautohint.txt
--smart/-S has been removed.  Use +smart or -smart extension instead.
For example: pandoc -f markdown+smart -t markdown-smart.
Try pandoc --help for more information.
make[2]: *** [Makefile:1327: ttfautohint.html] Error 2

Looks like it’s from upstream, sigh...

@starlight thanks that seems to work. I've updated the pkgbuild
