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

Sorry guys, my mistake. I'd just made making -g and forgot to add SKIP for license. I will fix it when done drinking in ~30 minutes.

@salsadoom: hrm, the license from my install worked for me

prurigro commented on 2014-04-11 16:17

My (apparently) up to date windows 8.1 has Segoe UI Symbol v6.06 (seguisym.ttf) and Palatino Linotype v5.02 (palai.ttf), and since there's no legal way for people with older versions to grab the more up to date ones before Microsoft decides to bless us with em, I edited the md5sums and pasted them here: in case it saves someone a few minutes.

@reflexing: Well, that cannot be true about the license.rtf, because I get the following error:

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
license.rtf ... FAILED

Using the same license.rtf, actually the copy from Windows/System32/license.rtf

For anyone interested, I've updated the custom PKGBUILD for those who have access to Win 8 install medium, but don't have a way to get 8.1 update (don't desire to install & update, etc).

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

@FreeAsInGimme updated package, thanks

@hyshka it's not clear when do you get this error from pacman. Can you show me full logs representing this error?

reflexing commented on 2014-04-11 10:29

@FreeAsInGimme well it's funny that fully updated Windows 8.1 Pro install has seguisym.ttf version 6.06 and 8.1 Enterprise evaluation has 6.09 (just downloaded it to recheck myself). I will update package soon.

After compiling successfully I am getting this error from Pacman:

"error: argument '-' specified without input on stdin"

I can install the packages manually with pacman -U but wanted to let you know in case there is a PKGBUILD error.

FreeAsInGimme commented on 2014-04-09 17:36

It came from the 8.1 Enterprise evaluation mentioned in the PKGBUILD. I'll e-mail it now.
