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.

Thank you for maintaining this package, unfortunately I never had time to proper release ttf-ms-win10.

PS: I had a good tradition with ttf-ms-win8: releasing Torrent with needed files into the wild. Will look for doing so for ttf-ms-win10 ;)

PPS: extracting script I use:

In case anyone runs into trouble with upgrading windows 10 make sure to remove flash drives first.

zerophase commented on 2015-11-14 09:14

Nevermind, Windows isn't installing the update successfully.

The "Fall Update" was just yesterday.

@Bevan I'm having issues with passing checksums too. I just updated Windows to the latest version a couple days ago, and some of the font packages fail.

Bevan commented on 2015-11-13 20:28

I just updated the instruction in the PKGBUILD accordingly. The license.rtf can now be obtained from /Windows/System32/Licenses/neutral/Eval/EnterpriseEval/license.rtf on the Enterprise Evaluation CD. In gerneral using wildcards should always work: /Windows/System32/Licenses/neutral/*/*/license.rtf

Bevan commented on 2015-11-13 19:07

Hmm... I would expect the license to be anywhere on the CD. I will download it myself and have a look.
Thanks for the hint, nexero!

Scimmia commented on 2015-11-13 18:42

Interesting. The one file I didn't check. :(

Bevan, any ideas? I've got to head out right now.

nexero commented on 2015-11-13 18:32

@Scimmia: There is no license.rtf within the install.wim file anymore!

Scimmia commented on 2015-11-12 22:58

@sultanoswing, make sure you have the version of Windows specified in the pkgver.
