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: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/fonts/windows_10_font_list).

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 is worth noting that the 32-bit Enterprise ISO is lighter than the 64-bit one (2.9 GB against 4.0 GB).

No

The problem with this package is that every few months when Microsoft releases new fonts and the build fails, preventing pacaur from upgrading doing a AUR system upgrade. Getting the latest versions of the fonts is annoying to say the least.

Could hashes of older fonts be allowed, with a warning that new versions exist?

Hi

Did anyone else encounter the following error when trying to create and install the package?

Is there a need to remove any old installation from the package, and do the reinstallation?

Could you please fix the readme? wimlib is available in the repo's. :)

And both are crap. The AUR uses git, if you want a different version, just check that version out.

ttf-win7-fonts has done multiple SHA sums for many years now. ttf-ms-win8 has it too.

Bevan commented on 2018-02-28 13:52

Ataraxy: Multiple SHA sums for one file are not possible. We could only set it to "SKIP" to completely ignore them but I don't think that's a good idea. If you know what causes the different checksum (as in this case), you can simply run updpkgsums before makepkg as a workaround. Or run makepkg with the argument --skipchecksums.
