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

@matthias.lisin I don't have this problem with Infinality's fontconfig rules: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Infinality

If somebody is having issues with ugly-bold Arial font in Qt applications:
It's caused by 'ariblk.ttf'. You can delete this font to solve this problem or find a solution using fontconfig conf.d files.

It's possible to skip checksums verification. Just:
$ makepkg -s --skipchecksums

I got Windows 10 fonts working with this package by changing the PKGBUILD like so: https://www.diffchecker.com/3bic358t

@reflexing At least update your comments / instructions in the pkgbuild to note the actual requirements. The statements about this working with "any edition of Windows 8.1 RTM build 6.3.9600.17050" are false. The information on how to retrieve is good, but after spending the time to register with Microsoft, download an ISO, and extract the fonts it is frustrating to find out that you have to then manually modify the pkgbuild if you want it to work. Your use of arrays to store the file list doesn't make it simple to generate the md5sums in the correct order.

@aitrus I wanted to create an ArchWiki page with all around ways to install package and leave a link to it in the PKGBUILD, but "Arch wiki warriors" cleaned it up: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Ttf-ms-win8&oldid=337682

I think this kind of automation is against the Arch Way. I won't implement it.

@reflexing Understood, but that is confusing. The pkgbuild specifically calls out using the ISO and even gives download / extraction instructions. Perhaps it would be better if the build asked whether you are using the ISO or an install as the source of the fonts.

@eunonimo you can use it as a base. Win 10 has slightly different font list, and some of the olf fonts have their version bumped. I hasn't finished ttf-ms-win10 yet.

will it work on windows 10 fonts?
