This package is based on ttf-ms-win10. It differs in that it automatically downloads the fonts from Microsoft, if possible without downloading an entire ISO file.

If Polkit allows the user to create loop devices and mount files using udisks, around 200 MB of (mostly compressed) data will be downloaded. This can be a slow download method even over the fastest connections, since the fonts are taken from a large ISO file without downloading the entire file.

If Polkit is not available or it does not allow the user to use udisks, the entire ISO file will be downloaded and install.wim will be extracted. A check ensures that enough temporary disk space is available, which can be up to twice the size of the ISO file. This can happen if either Polkit or an authentication agent is not running, or when a user is logged in remotely (e.g. through SSH).

Haven't found how to make Merge Request here, so attaching code here: _mountpoint=$(udisksctl info -b $_loopDev | grep MountPoints | tr -s " " | cut -d" " -f3) if [ -z $_mountpoint ] ; then _mountpoint=$(udisksctl mount -t udf -b "$_loopDev" --no-user-interaction | awk '{print $NF}') fi

Please add this, to avoid failure due to automount options.

Don´t know if you can work around this in the PKGBUILD but GNOME auto mounted the loop device which causes a conflict with the loop creation & mount process.

Disabling the automount with the dconf editor fixed the process for me.

Thanks, Forgonewarrior and abouvier. I added your suggestions.

I think you forgot to change pkgrel to 2 in the most recent PKGBUILD. This creates a conflict between SRCINFO and the actual package.

It would be better if each subpackage provides/conflicts with his non-auto counterpart.

Thanks, Yonsy. Package is updated.

you only need to put ttf-ms-win10 in provides, not in conflicts, because you can't install the other ttf-ms-win-10-auto-* fonts because you generate a cross conflict.

Works great! The download is slow (comparable to downloading the ISO), but so much more convenient than extracting everything manually.

This is amazing. Thank you.
