I am getting the following error during installation:

See the the supplied _COPY scripts for easy ways to get the fonts from Windows.
Extra fonts: *.tt[fc]

Any missing files must be supplied and editing of the PKGBUILD may be required.
Edit the PKGBUILD for instructions and changes.
The necessity for user intervention makes this PKGBUILD not compatible with
1 step package installers like packer or yaourt.

The one font you got is the one that can be downloaded. The rest of the fonts must be supplied by you. Copy scripts are available to help get the fonts from a running Windows or through a network. You can also get the fonts from a CD.

Hi all,
I'm having two obstacles getting around.
1st. is this: Unable to find 81 font(s)
I set the _opt_SkipMissing to 1 and/or 2 and came to
2nd. which is: .../PKGBUILD: line 1355: _extracted_ttfs[0]: unbound variable
After some search found this:
- _fontsout+=("${_extracted_ttfs[@]}")
+ _fontsout+=(${_extracted_ttfs[@]+"${_extracted_ttfs[@]}"})
and finally managed to build this pkg but... with only 1 font inside.
A little help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Andale downloads fine for me. Likely a temporary problem with SourceForge.

You copied them as root. Use chown to change them to your user name. For me the command looks like this. Adapt as necessary.

chown -R chris:users ttf-win7-fonts/

I could fix the PKGBUILD but it's not desirable to have random files owned by root in your user folder.

I receive the following error:

...
==> Starting build()...
chmod: changing permissions of 'arialbd.ttf': Operation not permitted
/usr/bin/makepkg: line 729: logpipe: unbound variable

The files are all set to 777. Here's a partial ls -la output:
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 750216 May 19 2014 arialbd.ttf
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 562728 May 19 2014 arialbi.ttf
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 557004 May 19 2014 ariali.ttf
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 773852 May 19 2014 arial.ttf
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 119876 Jun 10 2009 ariblk.ttf

Any ideas what's wrong?

The only difference I can see is Palatino to Georgia and Courier. Perhaps someone who knows more about font configurations could comment on which of the other differences are preferred.

Example: <dir>/usr/local/winfonts</dir>
Probably not a useful line in Arch Linux.
