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

My fonts are successfully installed to /usr/share/fonts.

Example of Times:

~ l /usr/share/fonts/TTF/ | grep times
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1M 2014-07-18 08:14:28.000000000 +0200 timesi.ttf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1M 2014-07-18 08:14:28.000000000 +0200 timesbi.ttf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1M 2014-07-18 08:14:28.000000000 +0200 timesbd.ttf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1M 2014-07-18 08:14:28.000000000 +0200 times.ttf

However, Times is not available in Inkscape.

Any ideas why?

Original simsun.ttc (a Chinese font) from Windows has embbed bitmap font. But it seems embbed bitmap is missing after fontforge extract it to seperate ttf files.
PS: Why ttc files have to be extracted? Doesn't Linux support ttc files?

Once again, for anyone interested, I've provided an updated edited PKGBUILD for those who have access to Windows 8 install medium but don't have access to the 8.1 update (don't desire to install & update, etc).

Fonts that are specific to Win 8.1 are simply commented out.

@reflexing - Thank You! I didn't even know it's possible if i haven't /tmp separate partition.

reflexing commented on 2014-07-15 19:41

Your /tmp is filled up, check it out with
df -h | grep /tmp

I get this strange output when install these packages. I don't know why, my disk free space is enough(almost 40 GB).

What is wrong?

reflexing commented on 2014-07-12 10:41

@orschiro no, it doesn't. All it does is telling Fontconfig not to use core MS fonts families.

orschiro commented on 2014-07-12 10:40


I guess because fake-ms-fonts creates symlinks to the same files/fonts which are also provided by this package.

@DaveCode Can you elaborate why should I do this?

Add conflict to PKGBUILD
