Re: Need Help Installing/Building Package (AUR)

Looking up how to create a Debian package would be a good first step, no?

Actually, you shouldn't need to make this into a package. It's just installed some configuration files. Open up the PKGBUILD and see the package() function.

Just download the tarball, extract it and move the files like they do in the package() function. However, font configuration might differ on Debian (versus Arch) so you might have to do this differently.

But it is not a real application. It's just a bunch of files for fontconfig. Why go trough all the trouble of packaging, if you can just use the relevant files?

^ what Unia said. All this package does is create a directory and untar an archive into it. It has no dependencies that need to be tracked. This is all it does:

	mkdir -p $pkgdir/etc/fonts/conf.avail/sharpfonts
	mkdir -p $pkgdir/etc/fonts/conf.d
	tar xvf ${pkgname}.tar -C $pkgdir/etc/fonts/conf.avail/sharpfonts/
	cd $pkgdir/etc/fonts/conf.d
	ln -s ../conf.avail/sharpfonts/* .
