[SOLVED-Potential Bug] Sources with whitespaces in PKGBUILD

Hello all, I feel like this is a newbie question, but I've scoured the internet for answers and am at my wits end.

I'm trying to build a very simple package including 4 font files so I can teach myself about the process as well as customize my newly built environment.

Here's the PKGBUILD (work in progress) :

pkgname=ttf-meslo-nerdfont
pkgver=1.0
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="Standalone Meslo Nerd Font patched for Powerlevel10k"
arch=("any")
url="https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k-media/"
license=('Apache')
depends=('fontconfig')
provides=( ${pkgname} )
source=('Meslo LGS NF Regular.ttf::https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k-media/raw/master/MesloLGS%20NF%20Regular.ttf'
              'Meslo LGS NF Bold.ttf::https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k-media/raw/master/MesloLGS%20NF%20Bold.ttf'
              'Meslo LGS NF Italic.ttf::https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k-media/raw/master/MesloLGS%20NF%20Italic.ttf'
              'Meslo LGS NF Bold Italic.ttf::https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k-media/raw/master/MesloLGS%20NF%20Bold%20Italic.ttf')
sha1sums=('SKIP'
          'SKIP'
          'SKIP'
          'SKIP')
package() {
  find . -iname "*.ttf"
}

And here's the output of makepkg :

And the ouptput of ls :

'Meslo'$'\n''LGS'$'\n''NF'$'\n''Regular.ttf'             ttf-meslo-nerdfont-1.0-1-any.pkg.tar.zst

As you can see, the spaces in the filenames in PKGBUILD are interpreted as newlines. I've tried all sorts of escape sequences, quoting, double-quoting... all to no avail.

While there are different ways to achieve the end goal differently, I'd like to know how to solve this specific issues.
Thanks!

That's simple, you solve it by not using whitespace in the local filenames: "MesloLGSNF-Regular.ttf", etc.

Just like all the other fonts in /usr/share/fonts/TTF/ are named...

In any case, my question is how to handle whitespaces in filenames in PKGBUILD. I'm sure there's a better option than "do not"

Re: [SOLVED-Potential Bug] Sources with whitespaces in PKGBUILD

Try replacing the whitespace with the escape code for space , \20 .

example 'Meslo\20LGS\20NF\20Regular.ttf::https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k-media/raw/master/MesloLGS%20NF%20Regular.ttf'


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) ≠  (A works at time C)

I also had found this prior to posting, any chance it's related?
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/52992

Which got closed with the following message :

+              - parse stdin as newline-separated instead of whitespace-separated
+                (FS#52992)

As seen here:

Re: [SOLVED-Potential Bug] Sources with whitespaces in PKGBUILD

That might be a bug in makepkg.

get_filename in /usr/share/makepkg/util/source.sh accesses variables without quotes. Spaces in the local filename seem to work after I quoted everything in that function.

Feel free to open a bug report, but it means you cannot use space in the source array for now. If you want spaces in the local files, you'll have to rename them during the package or build step.

Re: [SOLVED-Potential Bug] Sources with whitespaces in PKGBUILD

Thanks! Definitely a satisfying answer. I'll look into it to try to reproduce and I'll post the bug report.

And yeah I went without the spaces for now.
