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

@tancrackers My solution to the issue was to no longer extract the .ttc files as .ttfs, and everything seems to work now.

@reflexing Why were we extracting them in the first place?

Workaround: Install fontforge-git from the aur; it's an old version, so it works for this package.

Fontforge finally got an update yesterday and it looks like it's probably why the script isn't working anymore.

Getting an error while doing the makepkg command:
install: cannot stat ‘strippedname:/home/john/Downloads/ttf-ms-win8/src/cambria.ttc(Cambria)’: No such file or directory

The src folder is not receiving the link from cambria.ttc (which IS in the folder)

@reflexing
thank you, now it's perfect!

@nTia89 you can try fontconfig-infinality-ultimate (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Infinality-bundle) with MS configuration preset

For those without access to a live install, it is possible to use the fonts from the previous version copying over them the ones that have been changed. There are quite a load of ISOs with the new files "over there" (if you know what I mean). Just updated my PKGs by those means.

This little tid-bit of info fixed my system's rendering of several of these fonts. I just thought I'd share.

@spoon @orschiro definitely different package! I'm on vacation, and if nobody make it when I will be back I'll make it.
