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

What is with the checksum failures? I'm using fonts directly from a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro, no updates applied. Is there something I missed?

@reflexing

Cambria works well for me, Calibri not. Strange that we are encountering issues with different fonts.

Why is the package flagged out of date?

Hmm, disregard my last post, I don't install cambria.ttc in this PKGBUILD version. I don't know what cause this problem yet.

@orschiro @blablubb1234 it's because I forgot to merge cambria.ttc deletion. Delete it from /usr/share/fonts/TTF by hand.

Something's wrong there...

I can confirm that. I wonder why this only happens to Calibri and not Cantarell or Cambria as the other typical Office fonts though.

sl1pkn07's hint is worth gold if you want to avoid waiting for hours unpacking the install.wim. With this command you have the needed files in 30 seconds:

7z x install.wim -ir\!*.ttf -ir\!*.ttc -ofonts

makepkg -s --skipchecksums helps if you can't install the Update from M$ due to lack of installed Windows 8.

Just downloaded this and had some issues extracting the fonts from install.wim using the recommended command of: `7z e install.wim 1/Windows/Fonts/{*.ttf,cambria.ttc} -ofonts'.

Instead, using `7z e install.wim "Windows/Fonts/*.ttf" Windows/Fonts/cambria.ttc -ofonts' worked for me.
