Package is not broken. You can't build this with yaourt or pamac. It must be built with makepkg after obtaining the fonts manually.

@reflexing terribly sorry for taking up all this space with my previous comment, even more sorry for the delay in fixing the issue.

So, once again: Last I checked (some 5 months ago I believe) the package installer has the required fonts arranged in logical groups but the font checksums arranged alphabetically, therefore the build fails. In case anyone still needs it, here's a list (this time in a Gist) with the font checksums in the correct order. Just edit the PGKBUILD and replace the md5sums list with this one.

The fonts were extracted from the Windows 8.1 Enterprise v6.3.9600.17050 ISO, downloaded from MS Technet (don't know if it can still be downloaded though with Windows 10 being out):

Fonts are not included. Have you supplied the fonts as instructed by the PKGBUILD?

Fails to build.

ERROR: arial.ttf was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

Not sure which version mine is though. Next time I boot it I will see.

Working for me:

ljrk commented on 2015-08-15 13:31

Seems that some fonts changed:
cambria.ttc ... FAILED
cambriab.ttf ... FAILED
cambriai.ttf ... FAILED
cambriaz.ttf ... FAILED

Can anyone confirm that? (As I have acquired it from my install I trust them and can just skip the checks ofc.)

@Nocifer nice, but could you please at least make a Gist with your md5sums, delete your comment and link Gist in a new? There is no comment folding here and yours take too much space.

reflexing commented on 2015-05-14 06:16

@ahbrosha why did you flag it out-of-date?
