This update contains several fixes and improvements, both for users & package maintainers:

  • priority/ordering has been decreased even more [60->61] to prevent these fonts from hijacking default system configuration
  • *.otf format is now shipped as well, so the fonts can be used inside LibreOffice
  • devel subpackage has been added, which now provides the %{urw_base35_fontpath} macro. This macro provides full path to fonts location, which is useful for some other packages.
  • nimbus-sans-narrow subpackage has been merged into nimbus-sans subpackage
  • additional internal fixes

The automatic upgrade should pass OK now with nimbus-sans-narrow subpackage installed. :)

The update works for me. No obtrusive changes noted in default fonts, either. :)

User Icon ellert commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

The StandardSymbolsPS.otf font introduced in this update has broken charmaps. Since fontconfig prefers the .otf version over the .t1 version this is a regression that breaks applications.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1534206 for details.

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

After discussion with upstream I have decided to push this update into stable. @ellert, in case you need a workaround, you can delete the *.otf version of Standard Symbol PS for now.

This update breaks text formatting in Firefox and Epiphany where the font-family rule is set to Helvetica (which Nimbus Sans is marked as a substitute for), for example: Bootstrap 3 labels https://getbootstrap.com/docs/3.3/components/#labels

Before this update, the text was in the center(ish) of the label, after this update the text appears to have floated upwards.

Note: setting font-family to "sans-serif" makes Firefox and Epiphany choose DejaVu Sans as the font (which doesn't suffer this problem), so maybe this font shouldn't be chosen at all unless explicitly asked for? Even before this update it looked a bit off-center IMO where other fonts do not.

@moggers87: Please, create a new BZ for it, with screenshots attached. We are talking about fonts here - word description isn't just enough. Otherwise I can't help you.

Secondly, I will need to know what font was used for displaying of Helvetica prior to this update.

And one more thing - after you update to this package, try deleting all OTF versions of the fonts: $ sudo rm -f /usr/share/fonts/urw-base35/*.otf

Will this solve the issue?

This update has been pushed to stable.

User Icon dkaspar commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

Sorry guys, I wasn't able to stop this push in time yesterday, so it made it into stable... :-/

Anyhow, we're currently waiting for the fixes to OTF versions of the fonts. In case you're having problems after this update, you can issue $ sudo rm -f /usr/share/fonts/urw-base35/*.otf to temporarily workaround this issue.

My apologies for any inconvenience.
