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.

@Bevan aur helper can't download the file gives this error:

-> Downloading arial.ttf...
Unable to find file://arial.ttf, please read the PKGBUILD

and likewise it can't verify it.Is there any special requirement for installing this package?

Would it be possible to add the fontconfig files provided in ?

The build version is the same as the pkgver of this package.

adq commented on 2017-04-26 20:56

All, you need to upgrade to the "Windows 10 Creator's Update" for this package.

"holomd12.ttf" appeared on my (win10 professional, English UK) system once I did so, and all the other checksum mismatches have solved themselves.

Would it be possible for the maintainer to put the windows build version (or other major update details) as a comment in the PKGBUILD in future?

It's in my English Home version, so it's not "clearly" anything.

ChrisLane commented on 2017-04-16 16:21

I'm also using the English Education edition. Clearly holomd is only available in the Pro version.

I have holomd12.ttf on my german Pro version but it is missing from my german Home edition. Using the fonts from the german Pro version did work like a charm.

ipt commented on 2017-04-12 19:15

I'm having the Education edition in English.

Scimmia commented on 2017-04-12 16:12

I wonder if there's a localization issue with holomd12.ttf. I have it on my English installation and English ISO, are people that are missing it on a different locale?
