FAQ, please read before posting:

  1. I get an error that the sources cannot be downloaded: Please read the instructions on the top of the PKGBUILD.

  2. Some fonts are missing in my copy of Windows (e.g., holomdl2, corbel, chandra, ...): It seems that Microsoft distributes some fonts only with some Windows versions. You can just comment out the corresponding line in the PKGBUILD and then build with "makepkg --skipchecksums".

  3. Some fonts have different checksums: We keep the checksums synchronized with our own Windows installations that are regularly updated. Different Windows versions, different ISOs etc. may contain fonts in different versions/variants. Just build the package using "makepkg --skipchecksums".

  4. Why does the version not correspond to the latest Windows 10 build: If fonts have not changes between builds, there is no reason to change the version number of this package.

  5. Why are some fonts (e.g., traditional chinese, japanese etc.) not included here, not even in the corresponding split packages: We currently only include fonts that are installed on a standard Windows installation, without additional feature-on-demand packages (see:

Please refrain from posting links to the font files required to build this package. Microsoft fonts are protected by copyright and neither we nor you are allowed to distribute them. This package only provides an approach to cleanly integrate the fonts into an Arch Linux system provided that you have a licensed copy of Windows 10. Otherwise you can use the ttf-ms-fonts package to install publicly available fonts.

If you post comments intending to distribute the fonts via this page we need to contact administrators in order to remove your comment.

@kode54 I think they are TrueType fonts.

@genelocated aren't those bitmapped fonts?

genelocated commented on 2020-12-20 07:04

Include SimSun and SimKai for zh_CN fonts.

sha256 sums for Windows 10, build 2004:

@kode54: I unflagged it again. This happens all the time because people often do not read the FAQ.

kode54 commented on 2020-09-09 03:12

Why is this flagged out of date? There hasn't been a new feature release of Windows since April.

I had the problem that the fonts looked horrible, and it turns out the reason is they have terrible embedded bitmaps. To get proper rendering there’s a fontconfig option to fix that:

Maybe it would be reasonable to ship a proper fontconfig file (in /etc/fonts/conf.{avail,d}/) including that fix with this PKGBUILD.

sha256sums are either outdated or incorrect

@new2001 I prefer no auto download too, but edit URL, DLAGENTS and build package is a little tricky and not so friendly. I think if we can directly use my own .iso/.wim/windows-path or just provide some helper function, it would be better.

@baderas: You don't need to update the package, you can even make your own local copy and download and extract as you prefer. Most of the changes are very minor anyway. Automatically downloading a whole OS setup, just for some font files, is too much as a default solution, in my opinion, especially for people with limited internet access. I also understand the maintainer doesn't want to risk any "trouble" just for the sake of more convenience.
