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.

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.

@Beva, thank you!

Shatur: I don't think that Microsoft releases new ISOs for every OS build. So if you are relying on the ISOs you probably have to stick with the last version of this package.

Note that you can always download old versions of the PKGBUILD from AUR. For the Fall Creators Update ISO this would be the following link:

Where I can download windows image with latest fonts?
