Disk size Noto fonts huge?

According to Pamac Noto TTF fonts use 107,7 MB and Noto CJK 306,1 MB on my system.

This looks odd or is this normal?

Seems about right, yes. The noto-fonts package contains many more fonts than any other font package in the list.


Not only does Noto contain a large number of fonts, but it contains a huge number of different alphabets including Black&White and coloured emojis, Cyrillic, Imperial Japanese, Hieroglyphs, … and the list goes on and on and why Noto is so popular with people creating truly global applications that support nearly all languages out there!



it’s possible to not install all
use key NoExtract in etc/pacman.conf


NoExtract = usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansArmenian*
NoExtract = usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansBenga*
NoExtract = usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansGujarati*
NoExtract = usr/share/fonts/noto/*Tamil*

after set NoExtract, run sudo pacman -S noto-fonts remove files :wink:


Thanks all. All three replies are appreciated!

In that case, would you be so kind as to mark one of those three posts as the solution? This will add a link to said post into your opening post, and it will ensure that the thread automatically gets closed in order to avoid necro-bumping. :wink:
