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.

@psydvl What is your reason using a symlink instead of copying the Fonts directory? I wouldn't recommend to use a symlink, you only need the fonts ones to build the package(s).

My system is dual boot Win/Arch Can I only symlink Fonts directory some way without copying them?

You can also use Windows 10 2020H2 ISO to grab all the needed fonts.

FWIW I do have holomdl2 and on my ThinkPad's OEM Win 10 Pro.

@kode54 I think they are TrueType fonts.

@genelocated aren't those bitmapped fonts?

Include SimSun and SimKai for zh_CN fonts.

@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Why is this flagged out of date?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.
