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.

I would appear that Candara Light and Corbel Light are not present in a freshly extracted iso.

Again, use the PKGBUILD for the version of Windows you have. Those fonts were added in 1809, just as the git log shows.

florensie, use the correct pkgver for the image you have.

barlog: What is yay? I guess, it's an AUR helper of some sort. I have no idea where which AUR helpers build their packages. The only "supported" way to build this package is manually download and extract the snapshot ( or to clone the git repository, and to run makepkg yourself. Before running makepkg you need to place the font files in the same directory where the PKGBUILD is stored (i.e., where you cloned the repo / extracted the snapshot).

Please see for more detailed instructions.

Please explain to me where i must store ttf files on fs that a command 'yay -Syu' can update the package?
