The md5 errors did occur for me too. They seem to only happen when I don't have mhash installd.
Maybe mhash should be added as a dependency for yaourt.

@Arup: Sourceforge is tmpy down
Edit pkgbuild to use mirror:

impact32.exe fails the md5sum validity test.

andreyv commented on 2016-03-28 12:28

@birdflesh: Thanks for the explanation.

birdflesh commented on 2016-03-23 18:31

@andreyv you can refer to my 2013-01-30 comment about Tahoma font. I believe this is the same reason that Tahoma was not included in this package when it was available through the official repos. Versioning also follows the official package which when moved to AUR was on its 2.0-3 version.

About https, you will notice that trying to download an https url on sf with curl or wget will always redirect to an http location, so I think there is no real point in using https.

andreyv commented on 2016-03-22 16:30

Hello,

Two remarks:

- http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/ shows the latest version is 2.5, but here it is 2.0.
- https://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/the%20fonts/final/ also contains wd97vwr32.exe, which contains the Tahoma font according to corefonts changelog, but this package does not extract this font.

EDIT: Also the upstream files should be available through HTTPS now.

Megameneer commented on 2016-03-15 17:59

Does not work: 404 error on andale32. When I open the link to it in Firefox, I am redirected to a page ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/the%20fonts/final/andale32.exe/download?use_mirror=heanet ) that says "Your download is starting in 5 seconds", so maybe that might be the problem.

When I use the patch from dustinphipps, it just worked.

lisu_ml commented on 2015-11-09 14:06

It works again, sorry for bothering you and thanks for the reply!

DarkCerberus commented on 2015-11-08 14:47

lisu_ml: It must have been temporary, it works for me on a clean arch install - nothing wrong with the PKGBUILD it only downloads from sourceforge to get the windows fonts so it may have been a sourceforge.net technical server fault.... Try it again if it still doesn't work then it maybe at your end - maybe a recent configuration change or a broadband connection glitch.

lisu_ml commented on 2015-11-06 19:51

Won't build as the URL for trebuc32.exe is broken.

birdflesh commented on 2015-07-18 07:58

I believe your problem was temporary. I just tested the current PKGBUILD and it works as usual.

dustinphipps commented on 2015-07-17 21:45

The sources aren't resolving because the URL in the PKGBUILD is incorrect. Here's a patch file that will make it point to the correct one:

https://gist.github.com/dustinphipps/68257fde2eff971fb1be

Clone it to the package directory and run the following command:

patch PKGBUILD ttf-ms-fonts_PKGBUILD.diff

vinadoros commented on 2015-07-17 21:01

Seems like the links are having some issue (they can't resolve to any download).

ingvij commented on 2015-06-16 21:13

Due to sourceforge's changes, I'm currently unable to download such files via script.

beroal commented on 2015-02-11 11:44

I forgot that I already had those files downloaded.

ant32 commented on 2015-02-11 06:33

sourceforge was down. Was probably downloading some 404 website not available files.

bazenuggets commented on 2015-02-11 01:08

This is broken. I get md5 errors, then when I run with --skipinteg, I get "cannot stat *.ttf".

beroal commented on 2015-02-10 21:54

@DiscipleOfDante: I've checked after you. Everything is okay.

DiscipleOfDante commented on 2015-02-10 19:49

I've tried to install this package and all of the files fail the md5check. When I went to update the md5s I noticed the sources all have the same md5sum, this implies that they are all the same file. Upon replacing these I get the error:

install: cannot stat '*.ttf': No such file or directory

birdflesh commented on 2014-12-02 19:04

It works now, it must have been something temporary.

Flagging as out-of-date. PKGBUILD needs to be updated.

Sorry.. I posted the previous comment in the wrong page.

cuihao commented on 2014-07-21 05:21

Original simsun.ttc (a Chinese font) from Windows has embbed bitmap font. But it seems embbed bitmap is missing after fontforge extract it to seperate ttf files.
PS: Why ttc files have to be extracted? Doesn't Linux support ttc files?

darose commented on 2014-07-10 14:48

Works for me, using the following configuration:

* Installed helper/fix package https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fontconfig-ttf-ms-fonts/
* XFCE font settings: http://www.darose.net/XFCEFontSettings.png
* Chromium font settings: http://www.darose.net/ChromiumFontSettings.png

jlesquembre commented on 2014-07-10 08:35

The package changed my chromium font, now looks weird. I removed the package, but I still have the same weird font. I'm trying to clear/update the fonts cache, but it didn't solve the problem. Any suggestion to go get back the original font?

Everything in the AUR requires base-devel. It's assumed to be installed.

Thanks, for some reason the process just went through the next day. Probably just a temporary error :)

Lone_Wolf commented on 2013-11-01 10:55

melltuga :
downloading tarball, extract it, and then running makepkg works fine for me.
you may have discovered a yaourt bug

yourealwaysbe :
bsdtar extracts the fonts from the *.exe automagically, cabextract is not needed.

melltuga commented on 2013-11-01 09:33

==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build ttf-ms-fonts.

Any ideas on this? I really need the ms-fonts :/

yourealwaysbe commented on 2013-10-19 11:27

@emel:

I had the same problem: the current PKGBUILD doesn't seem to extract the fonts from the exes before trying to install them. I fixed it by editing the PKGBUILD to include

for f in *.exe; do
cabextract $f
done

before

install -dm755 "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF"

in the package() function.

Anonymous comment on 2013-09-17 09:22

I'm fairly sure that this could be made legal for packaged distribution if you ship the exe-files untouched and extract them in post_install() (and remove on port_remove())...
I've made a PKGBUILD & install-file that should do this: https://gist.github.com/bkcsoft/6591991

Doesn't really make a difference in AUR (as you're building them locally anyway) but would be nice if someone could comment on the legality of this :)

emel commented on 2013-08-06 21:06

The checksums failed so I generated new ones with makepkg -g.
then trying to install these says
==> Starting package()...
install: cannot stat ‘*.ttf’: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
Aborting...

What am I doing wrong here?

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-30 18:06

Still, tahoma is not part of the core fonts.
Also, there is no license file in your installer. If this is part of some MS Office update, it's probably not legal to use this without an Office license.

Mikos commented on 2013-01-30 16:11

Thank you for explanation, I didn't know about this issue. I know there are another packages in AUR that provides Tahoma, but nothing is from official sources (one is WINE equivalent of Tahoma which has bad quality and other is from unofficial/illegal source).

Btw. I have found that winetricks is downloading Tahoma installer from this official Microsoft FTP server: ftp://64.4.17.176/Softlib/MSLFILES/tahoma32.exe

And this installer also contains Tahoma Bold. It can be made to separate package, but IMHO it would be better to include it in this one.

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-28 17:34

This has been discussed before (take a look at comments starting from 2010-12-08). Basically, tahoma from wd97vwr32.exe misses the bold version and this looks bad in some web pages. Additionally, tahoma is not part of the original core fonts from microsoft that this package is supposed to provide.
There are a couple of packages that provide tahoma or you can use your modified PKGBUILD.

Mikos commented on 2013-01-28 15:17

Damn, it doesn't preserve text formatting. So here it is on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/z5GtGTHE

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-26 09:38

@jstjohn, unfortunately not everyone is fully updated before using aur. Keeping this in makedepends ensures that a meaningful error message is presented to those who aren't.

jstjohn commented on 2013-01-25 23:23

@birdflesh, pacman has the same versioned dependency. :)

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-25 09:36

@xangelux please take a look at lrm's latest comment. Is this the case with you too?

@jstjohn it's the version number that is important here (libarchive>=3.0.2). So, just to be safe, I will keep this for some more time.

jstjohn commented on 2013-01-25 01:36

All of the checksums pass for me.

Delete your src dir (e.g. "rm -rf /path/to/your/aur/ttf-ms-fonts/src") and run 'makepkg -s' again.

@birdflesh, because libarchive is a dependency of pacman, you can safely remove the makedepends array from the PKGBUILD

xangelux commented on 2013-01-25 00:04

checksum does fail

lrm commented on 2013-01-22 21:01

Please disregard my out of date flag. My error. The download was failing due to bad flags in the makepkg DLAGENT (not following redirects). The package is fine. My apologies.

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-22 16:41

No such problem here. Please avoid flagging packages without a reason.

lrm commented on 2013-01-22 16:28

Failing checksum verification.

birdflesh commented on 2013-01-12 10:05

It will be added as soon as font packages in extra have it too. Thanks.

Scimmia commented on 2013-01-12 05:22

How about adding provides=('ttf-font')?

https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2013-January/024252.html

birdflesh commented on 2012-04-25 13:32

This *could* be considered as an option if ms-fonts were installed in a separate folder. Since they are installed in /usr/share/fonts/TTF I guess we have to stick with what arch recommends for ttf fonts packages install scripts.

heavyrail commented on 2012-04-25 11:25

There are some problems with encodings other than UTF-8. For example, in some applications using these fonts in cp-1251 encoding, you might lose Russian symbols after each update of ttf-ms-fonts - these symbols would transform 'glyphs'.
One have to manually issue the following commands to fix this:

cd /usr/share/fonts/TTF
sudo mkfontscale -a microsoft-cp1251
sudo mkfontdir

Please consider inserting these or similar commands in post-install script for them to be executed automatically on update.

birdflesh commented on 2012-02-27 12:32

You should have ttf-ms-fonts.install in the same folder with the PKGBUILD when you are trying to makepkg.
This file is contained in the tarball (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/tt/ttf-ms-fonts/ttf-ms-fonts.tar.gz)

throbscottle commented on 2012-02-27 12:04

I got:
$ makepkg
==> ERROR: install file (ttf-ms-fonts.install) does not exist.
$

I downloaded all the .exe's individually and did manual install. Thanks very much for this - I've finally been able to finish my CV!

birdflesh commented on 2012-02-06 17:35

Works for me. Try manually downloading each exe file to your build directory from http://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/the fonts/final/

Anonymous comment on 2012-02-06 17:18

Every single file fails the validity check for me, and does so every time I've tried to update. I'm on x86_64, and it fails both with yaourt and with standard makepkg.

Anonymous comment on 2012-02-05 15:56

@sanderd17: Considering it uses the same pkgbuild for both 32-bit and 64-bit, it's probably an issue with your AUR helper. Try downloading the tarball and running makepkg?

hadrons123 commented on 2012-01-31 01:40

the letter 'e' looks bad after this install.I would suggest everyone here to install trebuchet font from Windows 7 installation if you think the 'e' looks ugly at some webpages.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-22 20:28

It seems that the new pacman can unpack CAB archives natively or something, which causes the conflict. I'll look into it.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-20 13:10

For some reason, when I want to install it on my 32-bit system, I get an empty PKGBUILD.

It's clear when I want to edit it.

It works fine on my 64-bit system. Does anyone notice the same thing?

birdflesh commented on 2012-01-18 13:00

Updated to 2.0-9
From now on libarchive is used to extract the fonts (cabextract not needed).
Also LICENCE is now provided by the extracted content.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-11 05:55

Yes, I am currently using the libarchive from [testing]. Glad that you figured out where that file was coming from ;)

birdflesh commented on 2012-01-10 21:21

Do you have libarchive from [testing]?
It seems that bsdtar 3 can handle exe/cab files and it fully extracts them at the beginning, including this 'fontinst.exe'

So, I will wait until libarchine 3 hits [core] and then I will probably review this PKGBUILD without the cabextract dependency.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-10 20:40

I can confirm that it's fixed now. The -L switch of makepkg just showed the cabextract messages in its "log" so I redirected all output to a file.

Without fix: http://slexy.org/raw/s2sqJxiFk2
With fix: http://slexy.org/raw/s20Twgg5RV

There isn't any mention of 'fontinst.exe', I'm kind of curious where it is coming from...

birdflesh commented on 2012-01-10 06:35

Ok, tell me if this is fixed now. I didn't do a version bump as the resulting package has no differences.

And since I'm still curious about the fontinst.exe finding its way in the $srcdir, I would also appreciate a build log from someone with this problem.

kirrmann commented on 2012-01-10 00:08

Problem is that cabextract tries to process the fontinst.exe in $srcdir

So fontinst.exe should be excluded in the for loop.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-08 18:40

Hmm, well I went ahead and downloaded the tarball and tried it again with makepkg but it still occurs.

birdflesh commented on 2012-01-08 11:06

No problems here, and you should not have a 'fontinst.exe' file anywhere. Try using a clean directory and avoid AUR helpers, using makepkg directly.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-08 05:12

There is a problem with the current PKGBUILD, it seems cabextract errors when trying to extract 'fontinst.exe' causing everything to break. Removing the file before the for loop seems to fix this.

gauthma commented on 2011-08-10 20:03

Err... none. I don't now how that happened; I'm sure I didn't install ttf-ms-fonts by hand. Was this package moved from the repos into AUR? Anyway, it's solved now. Thanks for the hint! ;-)

birdflesh commented on 2011-08-08 16:40

Which package prodives the file on your system? (pacman -Qo /usr/share/fonts/TTF/andalemo.ttf)

gauthma commented on 2011-08-07 19:38

Isn't the PKGBUILD missing a provides= or conflitcs= line? I ask this because when upgrading, I get a bunch of messages like so:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
ttf-ms-fonts: /usr/share/fonts/TTF/andalemo.ttf exists in filesystem

ilpianista commented on 2011-04-19 11:19

e.g. an http server doesn't need Xorg, but could use fonts :)

birdflesh commented on 2011-04-16 12:43

I preferred xorg-font-utils since this is what most ttf packages in extra/community use. Personally, I wouldn't even add xorg-font-utils, since it's an indirect dependency of xorg-server and should be available on any system needing fonts (for example ttf-dejavu does not depend on it). Thanx for this, but I'm leaving it this way for now.

ilpianista commented on 2011-04-16 12:22

IMHO That's not the way. You should explicitly add xorg-mkfontscale and xorg-mkfontdir.

birdflesh commented on 2011-04-16 11:22

Ok I'm (re)adding xorg-font-utils as a dependency (that would satisfy both xorg-mkfontscale and xorg-mkfontdir)

ilpianista commented on 2011-04-16 10:52

needs xorg-mkfontscale xorg-mkfontdir to install

SanskritFritz commented on 2011-01-18 13:08

I think the problem is when old files remain from old installs, like the forementioned setup.exe. Try a fesh install in an empty folder. Bauerbill works after I deleted the previous sources, confirmed.

msx commented on 2011-01-18 11:31

I can confirm PKGBUILD is working fine with Yaourt and Bauerbill/Powerpill.

birdflesh commented on 2011-01-15 21:06

You should probably contact clyde's developer about this. Adding workarounds for specific AUR helpers, while the PKGBUILD normally builds fine, is something that shouldn't be necessary. Thanks for letting us know though.

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-15 20:43

Sorry, but RamsesDeNorre is right. The latest iteration won't build for me, either, unless I make the alteration he suggested.

Upon further investigation, the reason is probably because in previous iterations you had a step that provided a setup.exe. I noticed that I had two package versions in the same location, suggesting that the cached data wasn't cleaned between version builds. Deleting the build directory had the same effect as RamsesDeNorre's change, allowing me to build.

I'm using clyde for installing packages. I'm not sure if other package managers would have the same issue with caching package data.

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-13 14:03

Ok, according to the name ttf-ms-extrafonts is supposed to be a nice addition to this package here. But it should include way more fonts imho.

You know what? I think it's better if one of you guys takes the package. I created it because its removal from the repos was discussed on the mailing lists and I wanted to help, but I don't need it as much as you guys do.
I suggest, whoever takes this package here should also adopt ttf-ms-extrafonts to make them a nice couple.

Last note for RamsesDeNorre, I really don't understand why you need this. There's no setup.exe in the srcdir!

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-12 18:50

I had to add a

if [ "${font}" != "${srcdir}/setup.exe" ]; then
cabextract stuff
fi

around the cabextract line to avoid getting

/tmp/clyde-ramses/ttf-ms-fonts/ttf-ms-fonts/src/setup.exe: no valid cabinets found

After doing so the package built fine.

Jonhoo commented on 2011-01-12 17:01

Hmm..
Just had a look around, and we already have two other ms fonts packages:
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35297
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=10408

Maybe find a way of sorting out this mess and providing two or three coordinated packages instead?

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-12 16:55

That's a good suggestion too. I guess I'll leave this package as it is now and add one called ttf-ms-fonts-extra with additional fonts. Does anybody know where I can find a list of additional fonts for this other package?

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-12 16:43

As of 2.0-7 it is working fine. Maybe you can keep this package as it is (it's working nicely) and add a new package with additional fonts that are not part of corefonts (as tahoma) for people who want them. Thanks for your work.

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-12 12:41

Ok guys, I switched back to the initial fonts, so tahoma is removed for now. I'll give Jonhoo's suggestion another thought and will bring an update soon.

I'm having some problems (ugly fonts) on some websites (for e.g. www.sapo.pt) after updating from 2.0-5 to 2.0-6. I downgraded and everything looks nice again.
Do you have any idea of which changes lead to this problem? Is it related to the removal of tahoma?
Thanks in advance.

Jonhoo commented on 2011-01-11 21:35

Well, I would probably split it into several packages; for instance:
ttf-ms-fonts-core
ttf-ms-fonts-common
ttf-ms-fonts-extra
Tahoma is a pretty common font, so I reckon that should be in core, but then the bold version also has to be in core to prevent ugly fonts as mentioned in the comment by Dogmeat.

Yes I saw that ... I followed sergej's advice a little bit too fast. That's why I asked you guys if you'd like to have all MS fonts in this package. Then I'll get tahoma from another source which also includes the bold version.

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-11 20:31

By the way, ttf-tahoma also contains tahomabd.ttf which this package doesn't. Without Tahoma Bold font some webpages look really ugly (blurry).

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-11 20:19

Ok, there's a thing I have to ask you guys, do you want this package here to be one which completely provides all MS fonts? If so, could you provide a list or a link to a list? I'd be happy to include way more fonts.

Oh, ok

BluePeril commented on 2011-01-11 20:01

could you please add conflicts=('ttf-tahoma')

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-11 15:16

I could add lucida console from ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/NT40TSE/hotfixes-postSP3/Euro-fix/eurofixi.exe (file lucon.ttf in there) Does anybody know if that's ok? I have that link from winetricks.

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-11 15:10

Done. Thanks sergej, I didn't see that font in there when I looked the first time.

sergej commented on 2011-01-10 12:38

What about tahoma.ttf from wd97vwr32.exe ?

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-08 10:29

No it installs all fonts being listed here http://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/the%20fonts/final/ I see no lucida there.

reflectionalist commented on 2010-12-08 10:00

Does it really contain the Lucida Console font, I cannot find it anywhere in the font lists of any editor?

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-07 01:02

I also wrote it in the very first comment here.

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-06 15:12

@cga: look below, your question has already been answered. (Even if you can't read cyrillic, which I can't either, the similarities with the lower comment should be obvious)

chmurli commented on 2010-12-05 10:30

problem solved. I had some strange configs in ~/.wgetrc. Sorry for trouble.

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-04 21:19

@ dapolinario, no problem, in the first moment I just thought that you wanted me to use install -f in the PKGBUILD :D :D

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-04 21:17

Hm, I don't know. You could try to download the files manually

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/corefonts/andale32.exe

etc. Then, if the md5sum differs from those in the PKGBUILD, it might help if you show us the output of your wget, maybe there's something strange going on.

chmurli commented on 2010-12-04 08:59

why my wget connot download any of this exe files properly?

chmurli commented on 2010-12-04 08:48

all md5sums are wrong, only LICENSE is ok.

dapolinario commented on 2010-12-03 20:08

Yes, the reply was for @KFE. Sorry, was my lack of attention.

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-03 19:58

update:
@KFe, I guess you need to manually remove the ttf-ms-fonts package, before you can install this new one. Another option is what dapolinario posted (now I get it, you pointed this to KFe, right?)

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-03 19:57

@KFe, please do a

export lang=C

before the commands, your output doesn't give me any clues

@thestinger, thanks!

@dapolinario, why do you think this option is necessary?

dapolinario commented on 2010-12-03 19:22

Install with the option "--force" or "-f"

Ah thanks, this build function is better! But you don't need those || return 1 anymore. And I want the build function to show some output.

msfonts.txt isn't necessary, rather.

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-01 11:19

I uploaded this package because here https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/21942 it is being discussed to be removed from [extra]. In case that won't happen, any TU may feel free to remove it.

To all the users, you need to manually remove ttf-ms-fonts with pacman -Rcns ttf-ms-fonts (I always use -Rcns, use what you prefer), otherwise it won't work.
