In the latest release of this package I've introduced a workaround to force fresh downloads whenever we bump the package release number, not just the version. This should work around most people's caching issues resulting from upstream's replacing files without changing the filename or versions.

If you hit a checksum error now please flag this package as out of date.

Note from upstream:

New versions of all fonts will be uploaded after the release of Unicode version 13, March 2020.

This is a known issue and is out of anyone’s control, except the author.

iago-lito: It seems that the upstream author has removed all of their fonts, which is unfortunate. Additionally, AUR helpers generally aren’t supported.

graves501: That isn’t enough information to give you a sufficient answer.

Tried to install with yay today, but got a 404. The file

http://users.teilar.gr/~g1951d/Symbola.zip

is not found. What's wrong?

Just wanted to upgrade and had this issue:

==> Entering fakeroot environment... fakeroot internal error #43: Identifier removed semop(2): encountered an error: Invalid argument /usr/bin/fakeroot: line 1: kill: (18714) - No such process Error making: ttf-symbola

Did anyone else encounter this problem?

No need for the unzip make dependency. makepkg uses libarchive/bsdtar (a dependency of pacman) to unpack archives.

@grawlinson https://fontlibrary.org/assets/downloads/symbola/cf81aeb303c13ce765877d31571dc5c7/symbola.zip

hope this helps fix the problem

That’s because the source server is down. If it doesn’t come back up within a few days, I’ll talk with the overlords and see what they say.

for some reason I can't install it at all, download fails

Pardon my naïve question, but did someone ask George Douros if he would allow Arch Linux to redistribute the font?

grawlinson commented on 2019-03-13 23:51

Apologies for the lack of communication. Will update ASAP.
