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.

Same error that tanckrackers and Mons1990 reported.
Each windows installation contains a license file in the foreign language, so the hash differs.
I think it's checksum validation should be skipped.

Solved with
makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD
makepkg PKGBUILD

I'm getting:
license.rtf ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I have an up-to-date Windows 10, and I took the license.rtf file from C:\Windows\System32

Package should conflict/provides:

provides=(ttf-tahoma ttf-{ms,vista,win7}-fonts ttf-ms-win8{,-arabic,-hebrew,-indic,-japanese,-korean,-other,-sea,-thai,-zh_cn,-zh_tw})
conflicts=(ttf-tahoma ttf-{ms,vista,win7}-fonts ttf-ms-win8{,-arabic,-hebrew,-indic,-japanese,-korean,-other,-sea,-thai,-zh_cn,-zh_tw})

Good job btw. Thanks.
