Package is not broken. You can't build this with yaourt or pamac. It must be built with makepkg after obtaining the fonts manually.

@wzyboy Well, I'll think about it, but personally I don't think that font configuration should be covered in this package. Who am I to make a decision of the default? I can provide something like /etc/fonts/conf.d/20-disable-bitmaps-ttf-ms-win8.conf with commented fontconfig rule to disable bitmaps. Do you think it will be okay? What font families should I mention there?

@reflexing @cuihao

Some users (like me) do not like embedded bitmap fonts in Chinese fonts (especially simsun.ttc). A quick fix of "<edit name="embeddedbitmap"><bool>false</bool></edit>" in /etc/fonts/conf.d/ can disable embedded bitmap fonts.

Consider shipping a conf file like community/wqy-microhei does? Then users would be able to toggle embedded bitmap fonts on the fly.

Thanks for your efforts.

@cuihao fixed. I mentioned you in commit message (if you don't mind).

@reflexing
Changing the line to Generate(thefontname + ".ttf", ttf) seems to cause fontforge crash and I guess the right syntax is Generate(thefontname + ".ttf", "ttf").

It works. ttf files now embeds bitmap fonts :)

@reflexing

Indeed seems to be an Inkscape related issue.

LibreOffice Writer finds the MS Fonts.

I will ask in the forums for further help.

reflexing commented on 2014-07-21 08:36

@orschiro maybe it's Inkscape's bug? Try to contact them.

@cuihao does it work when you change

Generate(thefontname + ".ttf")
to Generate(thefontname + ".ttf", ttf)

in PKGBUILD?

reflexing commented on 2014-07-21 07:14

@cuihao they are extracted so LibreOffice could recognize them, read comments below. I think I will revert this. Are you sure about embedded bitmaps?

reflexing commented on 2014-07-21 07:13

@orschiro not yet, really, mmm… what does

fc-list | grep Times

command show?
