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.

If someone can't find the holomdl2 font like me, here's my PKGBUILD without holomdl2:

Scimmia commented on 2017-10-20 02:05

I had really hoped that issue would go away with the Fall Creators Update. One of it's main features is more VR/AR support, so I would have expected holomdl2 to be everywhere.

@Bevan, this is so weird :) Okay, I'll remove this font from my PKGBUILD.

Shatur: The holomdl2 font is a bit mysterious: Some people have it in their Windows installation and some don't. You can just remove the corresponding line from the PKGBUILD, run "updpkgsums" and then run "makepkg" to build the packages without it.

Where I can find holomdl2 font? Link to image in PKGBUILD doesn't contain this font.
And this link doesn't contain this font too: (I tried es and us langs)

Can you add the fontconfig file provided by fontconfig-ttf-ms-fonts to the ttf-ms-win10 package, or add it as an optdepends?

It is in my Win 10 Pro - so I'd say it is just you :)

My Windows 10 Pro US English installation (current version as of 8/16/17) does not contain the marlett.ttf file; however, I pulled it from a Windows 7 machine I run as well.

I'm not sure if the font is dropped from the latest version of Windows 10 (so delete it from the PKGBUILD) or if it's just me. :)
