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If you hit a checksum error now please flag this package as out of date.

It is not a bug. The developer of symbola has changed the file without changing the version. makepkg sees the file and see that you have downloaded it before and uses that. checksum fails. It's expected behaviour.

@kkays you're right, it worked. aurman bug maybe?

kkays commented on 2018-06-13 12:30

@pmatos I had the same error trying to update via aurman. It seems it had a cached version of the zip ( that it was using instead of grabbing the new one.

rm -rf ~/.cache/aurman/ttf-symbola and try again, or skip the AUR helper for this update.

@keepitsimpleengr you now need to download it manually. Since it's not redistributable via packaging

That said, this repo doesn't redistribute the font, but the license change might be unexpected for users, so imo rolling back to a freely redistributable version would be better.

ChALkeR commented on 2018-06-06 19:17

The license is invalid, v11 is not longer freely redistributable afaik. Please either rollback to v10 or remove this.

See for more info.
