One (final?) small fix for package build behavior when building in a chroot via paru. The package was pulling in the real ttf-ms-fonts as a build dependency by accident, whoops.

Ping me on gitlab if anything breaks.

Thanks a lot! This works good!

@franzacq: I just pushed a new version compatible with both ttf-ms-win10 and ttf-ms-win11

@bbx0: Version 2 should do all the things you want, let me know if it doesn't.

Is there any update on the windows 11 version? I would love to use this package but I have the W11 fonts installed and I don't want to install the W10 fonts as well.

@bbx0 Thanks for the feedback!

I've made some changes in a working branch here:, take a look if you would and see if they behave the way you'd like.

I think I've set the conflicts metadata in such a way that only the win10 or win11 packages will be considered for dependency resolution, but I'll need to test that in a chroot when I have more time.

edit: Yeah, this seems to work really well. I could use a couple of guinea pigs to help test before I push it out publicly.

Nice idea! Thanks for making!

Would you consider to depend on ttf-ms-fonts instead of ttf-ms-win10? That brings generic support for all packages providing the MS Core fonts including the new ttf-ms-win11 package. (As the fonts are just a runtime dependency and not required to build this package, it would be nice to move them to the package() section. This will allow building in a clean chroot without downloading any fonts there first.)

I would not provide a specific version ttf-liberation=10.0 since version 10.0 does not exist upstream. It's probably better to fail the installation when another package actually introduces a version requirement for ttf-liberation, so it can be investigated why.

Below are the changes I would do. Works fine so far.

pkgdesc="Shim package to satisfy 'ttf-liberation' dependencies via 'ttf-ms-win*'; see for details"

package () {
  #Package requires MS Core fonts to be installed, ideally provided via 'ttf-ms-win10' or 'ttf-ms-win11'
