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.

It looks like with the split package, every package provides ttf-ms-fonts, so they all conflict with each other. I don't think that's the intended effect.

Example after only getting ttf-ms-win10 installed:
loading packages...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: ttf-ms-win10-other and ttf-ms-win10 are in conflict (ttf-ms-fonts). Remove ttf-ms-win10? [y/N] ^C

Correct me if I'm wrong.

@step-2, I'm not sure what you mean. The only difference is that it splits the fonts into separate packages instead of putting them all in one.

Thanks for this awesome pkgbuild!

Scimmia commented on 2015-11-04 04:01

So Bevan, any idea what direction you want to take this?

tangodaddy commented on 2015-10-16 19:47

Works like a charm. Thank you!

@erkexzcx: Please read the instruction in the PKGBUILD.

and the fontconfig config files?

At the time TTC were not supported by Libre Office. They are now. TTC are faster and better so long as all the applications you use support them.

@sl1pkn07: see below (2015-09-08 05:03). If you experience problems with the ttc files though, please speak up.

no need split .ttc (font collection) to single ttf files like a ttf-ms-win8 package?
