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

@lunarjar could you ask pacaur devs about split packages support?

MindfulMonk commented on 2013-04-05 13:13

Could you please put it all into a single package? Becase now I'm getting everytime i run pacaur -Syu

@reflexing, @spoon: I also get the hash checksums as lerks, but I don't have Office installed, just plain, updated Windows 8. So Office is not the explanation. Does aur support multiple hashes for the same file?

@nTia89 I'm sorry but I can't help you with this output, it's meaningless. Others build package fine.

I get an empty package; the output is:

@spoon I will add it in the next update, thanks.

@reflexing I have steam and google-chrome installed, both of which depend on ttf-font, so it would be nice if I could install just Windows 8 fonts without having to install any other fonts.

@spoon Well, this package provides Windows 8, not Office fonts. So mystery solved. What for should I add ttf-font?

spoon commented on 2013-03-27 03:54

I'm getting the same MD5 hashes as lerks. According to FontForge, these are the version numbers I have:

arial.ttf 6.81
arialbd.ttf 6.81
cour.ttf 6.81
courbd.ttf 6.81
micross.ttf 5.11
tahoma.ttf 5.26
tahomabd.ttf 5.26
times.ttf 6.81
timesbd.ttf 6.81

I do have Office 2013 Consumer Preview installed in Windows 8, so that may be where the newer versions came from.

Also, is it possible to add ttf-font to provides?
