Thanks, dagdrommer. I've removed the dependency as it does not seem to be needed anyway.

Make dependency "xorg-font-utils" is not available in the Arch repositories anymore, as it is now called "xorg-font-util" without the "s". Can the PKGBUILD please be updated? -Cheers

The problem is "Resuming transfer from byte position 5664768" - the archive.org server does not support that: "HTTP server doesn't seem to support byte ranges".

The solution is to delete the partially downloaded ttf-vista-fonts.cab file. Its location depends on how you are installing AUR packages. If you do it manually, it is in the extracted snapshot directory.

If you are using an AUR helper, locate the cache dir of this package (most probably located under ~/.cache/name-of-your-aur-helper/).

I notice you only extract Cambria from the TTC, rather than both Cambria and Cambria Math. This is unfortunate for those of us who want to use the math font in TeX. The following diff when applied to the PKGBUILD will extract both Cambria and Cambria Math from the TTC file rather than just Cambria.

28c28,29
< FONTFORGE_LANGUAGE=ff fontforge -c 'Open("cambria.ttc"); Generate("cambria.ttf")'
---
> FONTFORGE_LANGUAGE=ff fontforge -c 'Open("cambria.ttc(Cambria)"); Generate("cambria.ttf")'
> FONTFORGE_LANGUAGE=ff fontforge -c 'Open("cambria.ttc(Cambria Math)"); Generate("cambria math.ttf")'

@Marcel_K: I've uploaded the PKGBUILD as you provided, looks good and thank you once again for your invaluable feedback.
