The new terminus-font.install file runs 'mkfontscale usr/share/fonts/TTF' and 'mkfontdir usr/share/fonts/TTF' on the wrong directory which means that some programs can't font the Terminus fonts.

Additional info:
package version: terminus-font 4.38-2

Steps to reproduce:
-Install rxvt-unicode and adjust settings in ~/.Xresources to use the Terminus fonts
-Run 'xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local && xset fp rehash' after X starts
-urxvt will not run because 'fonts.dir' is missing in the '/usr/share/fonts/local' directory
-Manually run 'mkfontscale usr/share/fonts/local' and 'mkfontdir usr/share/fonts/local' to get urxvt to run
This task depends upon

Pretend the summary is prefixed with "[terminus-font] 4.38-2". I missed that part.

I have the same problem. The problem is fixed if I run mkfontscale and mkfontdir manually.

Any updates on this? Not that I install the package on a daily basis :-) but it's easy to fix, see clonejo's attachment.
