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

@sl1pkn07 from my reading and talking on #archlinux most people agree there is no proper support for split packages in AUR and while you can make them its a dirty hack.

Also there is this https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16394

A much more elegant solution would be to have seperate packages in AUR,
ttf-ms-win8 which would grab all of the below ones from AUR
ttf-ms-win8-en only the basic subset
ttf-ms-win8-SEA
ttf-ms-win8-arabic
ttf-ms-win8-hebrew
ttf-ms-win8-indic
ttf-ms-win8-japanese
ttf-ms-win8-korean
ttf-ms-win8-other
ttf-ms-win8-thai
ttf-ms-win8-zh_CN
ttf-ms-win8-zh_TW

This of course would take too much time to maintain imho.

@reflexing: try this http://sl1pkn07.no-ip.com/paste/view/28d2af33

its based on pkgbuild in your github, but with more code like a PKGBUILD-split.proto

with package like in your github

the message like @lunarjar is a pacaur information, not a error

@sl1pkn07 please, tell me how does it handle splitted PKGBUILDs?

sl1pkn07 commented on 2013-05-01 01:32

AUR can handle splitted pkgbuild

anhoter way to extract ALL fonts from the install.wim

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

@dongfengweixiao should I consider it as a threat? :) I didn't upload them to AUR yet. You can build them by yourself from old splitted PKGBUILD: https://github.com/reflexing/ttf-ms-win8/blob/88288da220fd4bf8e9cd75487f91c76ef04a1b6c/PKGBUILD
