Works for me, using the following configuration:

* Installed helper/fix package https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fontconfig-ttf-ms-fonts/
* XFCE font settings: http://www.darose.net/XFCEFontSettings.png
* Chromium font settings: http://www.darose.net/ChromiumFontSettings.png

The package changed my chromium font, now looks weird. I removed the package, but I still have the same weird font. I'm trying to clear/update the fonts cache, but it didn't solve the problem. Any suggestion to go get back the original font?

Wondering if otf-texgyre and ttf-comic-neue and such could sub (partially or wholly) for ttf-ms-fonts using fontconfig rules like

What really are the current closest approximations to core MS fonts in Linux FOSS?

Everything in the AUR requires base-devel. It's assumed to be installed.

requires base-devel ?

Lone Wolf:

Thanks, for some reason the process just went through the next day. Probably just a temporary error :)

melltuga :
downloading tarball, extract it, and then running makepkg works fine for me.
you may have discovered a yaourt bug

yourealwaysbe :
bsdtar extracts the fonts from the *.exe automagically, cabextract is not needed.

==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build ttf-ms-fonts.
==> Restart building ttf-ms-fonts ? [y/N]


Any ideas on this? I really need the ms-fonts :/
