It seems that this version of the font creates problems in <del>Firefox</del> all programs, with Tahoma Bold not actually appearing bold, while a version copied from Windows 8.1 works reliably.

Hi, So I am trying to install tahoma-arabic fonts but getting this error.

Fixed, thanks for reporting.

Edit the PKGBUILD, remove the depends array and rebuild, same with other fonts.

This is probably going to need updating because of the xorg-font-utils dep being removed. Right now I can't remove xorg-font-utils because of the removing xorg-font-utils breaks dependency 'xorg-font-utils' required by ttf-tahoma error.

Thanks KingFail, done.

The font files at used by this package are currently broken, possibly caused by LXR.

The ones on the git work however, and can be downloaded from the links below and installed manually.

I suggest changing the package to use the following URLs to pull the files from, not only restoring functionality but also ensuring the latest versions are always used:

It seems the installed fonts are not usable (fc-list / fc-cache do not process them. Double clicking on them with File produces an error too).

Adopted, but it builds fine for me. I guess the links have been corrected upstream.
