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: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/fonts/windows_10_font_list).

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.

My installation of Windows 10 Home was also missing marlett.ttf in the Fonts directory, but I found a copy in C:\Windows\WinSxS.

My up-to-date Windows 10 Pro installation doesn't has a marlett.ttf.

From what had been posted already the reason should be quite obvious. The fonts you get from the Windows 10 Enterprise 90-day evaluation are not the current versions of the Windows 10 fonts for all 6 calibri*.ttf.

What do you guys expect this package should do?
Cater for the current version of the fonts or cater for some older version of the fonts that come with a time limited evaluation licence?

[I will will refrain from commenting on possible legal issues with using fonts from an evaluation version as I'm sure you guys are already aware of them...]

I had the same problem as cbrnr. I downloaded the Windows 10 Enterprise 90-day evaluation from the link in the PKGBUILD, extracted the fonts, and attempted to build the package. Every font checksum passed except for the 6 Calibri fonts. I edited the checksums in the PKGBUILD to the ones cbrnr posted and it worked.

Scimmia commented on 2016-12-12 14:34

cbrnr, you assume you're up to date, but you're not.

cbrnr commented on 2016-12-12 11:43

The checksums for the 6 Calibri fonts do not match. I've used the files from my Windows 10 installation (which I assume has all the latest updates). Since I'm not the only one with this problem, maybe the sums should be updated to:

the default Windows10 Japanese font is called "Meiryo" right?
so is this Meiryo?

Synthead commented on 2016-11-29 23:48

Some of the Windows 10 Enterprise 90-day evaluation ISO's fonts fail checksum tests when doing a makepkg. I haven't tried snatching them from a Windows 10 machine yet, but I thought I'd mention it. Following the instructions in the PKGBUILD in a verbatim fashion yields this problem.

Scimmia commented on 2016-11-04 21:26

No version change, just the latest updates.

If you need to use the ISO, the AUR is git based. Just checkout the previous version and use it.

gosella commented on 2016-11-04 13:52

From what version of Windows 10 are the new Calibri checksums?

The files in the ISO provided for evaluation (currently version 14393.0.160715-1616.RS1_RELEASE_CLIENTENTERPRISEEVAL_OEMRET_X64FRE_ES-ES.ISO) doesn't match.
