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.

@smg3d same here, the sha256sum of cour.ttf does not match. However, you pasted the wrong file.

The old hash was: 4dc9a0be2df1d3872a3fae62be7c7aec1b6d6838a4a3302c6428a06635f4d2cb And the new one is: 8da71b5c11b17bade23095559fb0905741c15ee2f8800b1fa0ceb100e3fd6f45

Looks like cour.ttf was updated Dec.5, and current sha256sum does not match.

my Win10 was updated yesterday. cour.ttf is v 6.92, whereas the other cour* are v 6.91.

Seems like it's an issue with my installation/reinstalltion of Windows.

I get I/O errors.

I wrote a Python script to copy the font files on Windows (obviously you need Python installed for this):

You need the current PKGBUILD from this AUR package - put it in the same directory as the script above (or provide a path to it).

Example: python.exe c:\temp

This will copy all fonts found in the PKGBUILD to c:\temp.

Show all options: python.exe -h

The script will also check the SHA256 hashes which it also gets from the PKGBUILD.

I wrote this initially for myself. I'm not a programmer, so don't be to hard on me. There are certainly ways to make this simpler or better. But it worked perfectly fine for me - but use it at your own risk!

(You can run it from a *nix system, but you need to provide a working path to a Windows Font directory.)

Which has nothing to do with his question.

cswl, how do they not match?

abouvier commented on 2017-11-20 17:44

Use `makepkg --skipchecksums` :p

cswl commented on 2017-11-20 16:13

How can I use the fonts in my installed Windows 10.

I just `cp *` but the filenames do not match.

Do you have a script or something that copies from windows 10?

Bevan commented on 2017-11-19 23:04

diegod: The PKGBUILD targets the current stable Windows version 1709 and not 1803. Of course, you can edit the list of font files in the PKGBUILD and afterwards run updpkgsums to change the checksums to match the font files you have.

diegod commented on 2017-11-19 22:48

I'm getting validity check errors for most fonts and cannot find bahnschrift.ttf.
Fonts were extracted from a Windows 10 Pro version 1803 build 15063.674 machine.
edit: sorry, I thought I was up to date, but Windows lied to me. I'm now on 1709 and it worked perfectly.

I found some fonts not included in PKGBUILD and wonder if they are legit to be added:
SimHei(zh-cn): simhei.ttf
KaiTi(zh-cn): simkai.ttf
FangSong(zh-cn): simfang.ttf
MS Mincho(japanese): msmincho.ttc
Meiryo(japanese): meiryo.ttc, meiryob.ttc
You can search in with name of these fonts.
