FAQ, please read before posting:

  1. I get an error that the sources cannot be downloaded: Please read the instructions on the top of the PKGBUILD.

  2. Some fonts are missing in my copy of Windows (e.g., holomdl2, corbel, chandra, ...): It seems that Microsoft distributes some fonts only with some Windows versions. You can just comment out the corresponding line in the PKGBUILD and then build with "makepkg --skipchecksums".

  3. Some fonts have different checksums: We keep the checksums synchronized with our own Windows installations that are regularly updated. Different Windows versions, different ISOs etc. may contain fonts in different versions/variants. Just build the package using "makepkg --skipchecksums".

  4. Why does the version not correspond to the latest Windows 10 build: If fonts have not changes between builds, there is no reason to change the version number of this package.

  5. Why are some fonts (e.g., traditional chinese, japanese etc.) not included here, not even in the corresponding split packages: We currently only include fonts that are installed on a standard Windows installation, without additional feature-on-demand packages (see:

Please refrain from posting links to the font files required to build this package. Microsoft fonts are protected by copyright and neither we nor you are allowed to distribute them. This package only provides an approach to cleanly integrate the fonts into an Arch Linux system provided that you have a licensed copy of Windows 10. Otherwise you can use the ttf-ms-fonts package to install publicly available fonts. If you post comments intending to distribute the fonts via this page we need to contact administrators in order to remove your comment.

Inkfree.ttf checksum is wrong on latest Win10 install media.

8b89481f274ee1ad6fe49f539fc4435e114bc684beecb3fdafd6c7817bd05d85 checksum should be replaced with f23225869ceb58b78a836b84207d1726cc5d9c3f5fe2ae8a295ff62a98df09a0.

Deng.ttf, Dengl.ttf and Dengb.ttf may need to be added to package ttf-ms-win10-zh_cn

When trying to install:

==> Retrieving sources...

Unable to find file://*.ttf, please read the PKGBUILD

... will be announced in case of every font. I just replaced font name with asterisk to mention, that it happens in case of every font.

Same happens with checksums:

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... *.ttf ... NOT FOUND

Finally there will be announcement

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! -> error making: ttf-ms-win10

... and installation will be interrupted.

ttf-ms-win10-auto is outdated for now...

For anyone who wants to try an automated download, please try ttf-ms-win10-auto. It downloads the fonts from Microsoft, and it does not download an entire ISO unless it needs to.

I understand I can disable updating it, e.g. using /etc/pacman.conf, my helper reads it. I was more curious what do these updates add? Is it more/different fonts upon Windows updates?

neo2001 commented on 2021-02-23 11:15 (UTC)

Well, you don't need to update.

I'm no expert, but I guess if the checksums for the fonts would be in another file and then sourced, it would work. But then this file's checksum will change and needs to be ignored...

You could simply checkout the package from the AUR using git and then change the package name, so AUR helpers won't try to find updates for it. Then you can control when and if you want to update the font files.

barkley128 commented on 2021-02-23 08:14 (UTC)

Thank you, but why do packages like this one even update? It's a bit annoying to copy fonts again and again.
