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

@spoon okay, soon.

Can you add ttf-font to provides again? It seems to have disappeared.

I had the same checksum error seguisym.ttf.

Then I simply did an `makepkg --skipchecksums`, which make it ignore the checksums and package what present.

No need to switch to Windows to update the font, or patch the PKGBUILD with a matching checksum, especially it's too hard to spot the culprit checksum to be replaced.

@reflexing, I wonder how the PKGBUILD file is made? manually or generated someway? Either way, it would be great if the file names are put along with the chechsum entries side by side, e.g. as in a trailing comment.

Thanks for the great work.

@nucleartide checksum is OK, it's that Microsoft updated the font. This was discussed already, please read comments.

The PKGBUILD has the wrong md5sum for 'seguisym.ttf' - line 456 should say af96fbf7096b608480f0df146bfb8646 instead of 523ab078aac307d0e576a80bc155d32e. At the very least, this allows me to makepkg properly. :)

@beta990 good questions. Yes, it's not needed — "makepkg --pkg ttf-ms-win8" will make just the Windows 8.1 core fonts package which should cover even more than "Core TTF Fonts from Microsoft". Personally I have only "ttf-ms-win8" base package
installed on my machines.

I made different packages all by myself, the logic can be wrong, but I tried to do my best. Look at the comments in PKGBUILD file to see what fonts are in the "-other" package.

Thanks for providing this package. :D

A stupid question; It's not needed to install all the languages right?
Could you make it optional, if so. :)
What does the *-other package provides btw.?
