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

Here is my pre-compiled package. I uploaded it to Zippyshare: http://www71.zippyshare.com/v/83206090/file.html

If anyone is interested here is the PKGBUILD I edited to get it to install on my computer. http://d-h.st/iM7

Like andreyv msyh.ttc and simsun.ttc where missing for me so I removed those from the PKGBUILD and like lerks some of my MD5 hashes weren't matching (same ones as his btw) so I changed those in the PKGBUILD as well

@spirtbrat it's mostly done, but there are some problems with BASH scripting :)

Can we help ?

Some of the files I found in my Win8 installation didn't match the MD5 hashes provided in the PKGBUILD. These are the MD5 hashes that I have:

@andreyv Yep, wrong line in PKGBUILD, I know :( I'm sorry for the bug! I'll update package soon, stay tuned.

@reflexing: I found the problem. I copy-pasted the 7z command line from the PKGBUILD to extract the files, but this command line does not include *.ttc fonts except for cambria.ttc.

@reflexing: Yes, of course. I have it from DreamSpark, the label is "Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (English)" and MD5 is 0e8f2199fae18fe510c23426e68f675a. Unfortunately I can't tell the filename — I have renamed it since then... :-)

@andreyv I'm going to release new version soon, and there will be FULL PACK of Windows 8 fonts. Check them out here: http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/product.aspx?PID=164. If you don't have any of them, maybe you have a repack or other not genuine Windows 8 ISO. Can you please tell me md5 and file name of your ISO?

On my installation disk, msyh.ttc and simsun.ttc are missing.
