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.

About 1/3 of the fonts ( are failing the validity check for me and thus failing to install.
I have tried extracting them from my original media and from Microsoft's evaluation copy but no success.
I'm doing something wrong? Thanks

How do you copy out the system fonts like marlett.ttf from within a Windows 10 install?

@sl1pkn07, read the PKGBUILD

sl1pkn07 commented on 2015-11-22 20:26

the file:// protocol don't work

and is possible add the version of each font in the font commentary? like a ttf-ms-win8/ttf-win7-fonts package

@adomas: You have to copy the fonts manually from a Windows installation or CD. This is explained in the PKGBUILD.

If this error occurs although you copied the fonts, please see my comment from 2015-11-06 11:25.

I get this error:

==> Making package: ttf-ms-win10 10.0.10586-1 (Thu Nov 19 15:56:11 CET 2015)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...

==> ERROR: Unknown download protocol: file
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build ttf-ms-win10.

tried solution of @dstclair but I could not solve it :(

@step-2, the package doesn't contain them because Windows 10 doesn't contain them.

A.J commented on 2015-11-18 11:20

just notice the package doesn't contain arabic fonts like ttf-ms-win8

Scimmia commented on 2015-11-18 02:24

@dstclair, that doesn't make much sense. What was the error? Stock Arch makepkg.conf?

dstclair commented on 2015-11-18 01:13

I could not get this package to build until I replaced all file:// with local:// in the PKGBUILD file.
