Please remove the optional dependencies ttf-office-2007-fonts because it conflicts with this package

Since I'm switching to newer font packages (win 8.1 / win 10 if available) I disown this package again.

This installed perfectly, but I had a few comments on the notes in the PKGBUILD.

1) My Windows system (updated in the last few months) had a newer version of Arial (5.20, from 2014) than the SP1 installer (5.06, from 2010). You might want to recommend users check their versions.
2) If checksums fail, rather than manually generating and copying them, it's much easier to simply use `makepkg` with `--skipchecksums`.

The two Calibri Light fonts are part of Windows 7. They are not on the Windows 7 DVD but installed later by Windows Update. They are found in any updated Windows 7.

The Windows 8 DVD includes both fonts.

About the 'missing' calibri fonts, I have a Win7x86_64Pro (autodesk) with SP1 (last updated ~3 months ago) and all PKGBUILD fonts are present. You can easily modify your version of this PKGBUILD to suit your needs better, but calibri is there.

I just migrated this package to AUR4. If the original maintainer (mschmoelzer) wants it back I will transfer the ownership back of course.

@Asparaggi: you're right. The default Windows 7 install and SP1 don't have the calibril.ttf and calibrili.ttf files. I have a bare Windows 7 install and I followed the steps from the PKGBUILD for the SP1 fonts. The two mentioned are not found anywhere and no wonder, as those fonts are a part of the Office package and not Windows 7.

As stated here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2761217/en-us
"The Calibri Light font is the default font for Latin and Cyrillic text in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013, and headings in Word 2013 and other Office 2013 documents. When you view text created with these fonts before you install this update, the text is not displayed as expected."

Not everyone uses Office, so I see two choices here:
1. Update the instructions in PKGBUILD to include the Calibri Light download.
2. Remove those two fonts from the package as they're not a part of Windows 7.

The instructions in the PKGBUILD file didn't work for me for two reasons:
- cabextract isn't installed by default or listed as a dependency
- once cabextract is installed "$ cabextract -F *.tt[fc] -d win7_sp1 windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe" fails as *.tt[fc] doesn't seem to match anything

Copying the files from Windows/Fonts/* into the same directory as the PKGBUILD works fine.

trulex, read the instructions in the PKGBUILD file.
