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.

Could you please fix the readme? wimlib is available in the repo's. :)

And both are crap. The AUR uses git, if you want a different version, just check that version out.

ttf-win7-fonts has done multiple SHA sums for many years now. ttf-ms-win8 has it too.

Bevan commented on 2018-02-28 13:52

Ataraxy: Multiple SHA sums for one file are not possible. We could only set it to "SKIP" to completely ignore them but I don't think that's a good idea. If you know what causes the different checksum (as in this case), you can simply run updpkgsums before makepkg as a workaround. Or run makepkg with the argument --skipchecksums.

I have a fully updated Win10 box, with cour.ttf saying it is File version 6.90.

d4557f9674de7c5ef58ad4c3651016944672c6bf1f5e9253abfeea9730939808 cour.ttf

Is it possible to allow more than one SHAsum for a file? What version does the PKGBUILD expect?

Good to know, thanks for the quick help!

@chraffx: The checksum of that file was changed in Januar's Windows update, so we updated it here as well. I guess you have some pending updates that haven't been installed after your recent installation yet.

@Bevan ah, thx, I misinterpreted the skip as an error. The one that actually failed was cour.ttf, which was fixed by changing the checksum entry '8da71b5c11b17bade23095559fb0905741c15ee2f8800b1fa0ceb100e3fd6f45' to '4dc9a0be2df1d3872a3fae62be7c7aec1b6d6838a4a3302c6428a06635f4d2cb'. My windows install was pretty recent, are there two versions of that file? Or is that entry just outdated?

@chraffx: The checksum of license.rtf differs for different languages and maybe also different versions of Windows. That's why we skip the checksum check for that file (last entry of sha256sums is 'SKIP').

Hello, I've copied the fonts from my windows partition but I'm having trouble finding the license.rtf file. Where can I locate it? It isn't in the fonts directory and the one in System32 doesn't have the right checksum.
