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.

and the fontconfig config files?

severach commented on 2015-09-30 14:07

At the time TTC were not supported by Libre Office. They are now. TTC are faster and better so long as all the applications you use support them.

@sl1pkn07: see below (2015-09-08 05:03). If you experience problems with the ttc files though, please speak up.

no need split .ttc (font collection) to single ttf files like a ttf-ms-win8 package?

Bevan commented on 2015-09-30 13:29

No copyright violations, please. I will remove those comments immediately.

I seem to be having email issues right now, not sure if it will come through or not (some things are, some aren't). I'll just leave this here: https://gist.github.com/Scimmia22/5ef66fecbbda3f1b92b5

As described in the header of this PKGBUILD I'm happy to let other people improve this package and to give away the ownership of this package if necessary. I just pushed it here since I had created it anyway.
But I guess it would be a bad decision to give those permissions to multiple people targeting different goals. So I will get in contact with you via email and decide what to do.

I disagree, I think the ttf-win7-fonts PKGBUILD is extremely overcomplex for little gain. A 1400 line PKGBUILD is out of line IMO.

I needed a break, so I already made the changes. Less than 400 lines including the long intro.

Working from my ttf-win7-fonts code would be better. Most of the international labeling is already done and any new work will be separate and highlighted. It also handles the progression as new and updated fonts are released, which seems likely given the current lack of fonts and the claims of rolling release.

Scimmia commented on 2015-09-21 02:03

What would you think about splitting this up like the ttf-ms-win8 packages? I can do the work, but won't bother if you're opposed to it.
