@birdflesh: Thanks for the explanation.

@andreyv you can refer to my 2013-01-30 comment about Tahoma font. I believe this is the same reason that Tahoma was not included in this package when it was available through the official repos. Versioning also follows the official package which when moved to AUR was on its 2.0-3 version.

About https, you will notice that trying to download an https url on sf with curl or wget will always redirect to an http location, so I think there is no real point in using https.

Two remarks:

- http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/ shows the latest version is 2.5, but here it is 2.0.
- https://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/the%20fonts/final/ also contains wd97vwr32.exe, which contains the Tahoma font according to corefonts changelog, but this package does not extract this font.

EDIT: Also the upstream files should be available through HTTPS now.

Does not work: 404 error on andale32. When I open the link to it in Firefox, I am redirected to a page ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/the%20fonts/final/andale32.exe/download?use_mirror=heanet ) that says "Your download is starting in 5 seconds", so maybe that might be the problem.

When I use the patch from dustinphipps, it just worked.

It works again, sorry for bothering you and thanks for the reply!

DarkCerberus commented on 2015-11-08 14:47

lisu_ml: It must have been temporary, it works for me on a clean arch install - nothing wrong with the PKGBUILD it only downloads from sourceforge to get the windows fonts so it may have been a sourceforge.net technical server fault.... Try it again if it still doesn't work then it maybe at your end - maybe a recent configuration change or a broadband connection glitch.

Won't build as the URL for trebuc32.exe is broken.

birdflesh commented on 2015-07-18 07:58

I believe your problem was temporary. I just tested the current PKGBUILD and it works as usual.

dustinphipps commented on 2015-07-17 21:45

The sources aren't resolving because the URL in the PKGBUILD is incorrect. Here's a patch file that will make it point to the correct one:


Clone it to the package directory and run the following command:

patch PKGBUILD ttf-ms-fonts_PKGBUILD.diff

Seems like the links are having some issue (they can't resolve to any download).
