Can i use sudo pacman?

Maybe just do as advised by yay? :eyes: The AUR is provided by users so reviewing it is a good idea :slight_smile:

Yes. You normally need to review till the end in paru/yay AUR installs. After reviewing, it will install. Read the archwiki. And paru/yay manpages before asking.

Wait, remove this line from fish.config

[ ! -x /usr/bin/yay ] && [ -x /usr/bin/paru ] && alias yay='paru'

yay -S ttf-ms-fonts --nconfirm

There is a space between "fonts" and "--noconfirm."

Thanks for the best solution. it worked.

yay -S ttf-ms-fonts --noconfirm

Of course it did. But it belays the opportunity to inspect the PKGBUILD, which may be a trivial thing with packages (like ms fonts) which you are sure of, but it's not a recommended practice otherwise. Just because a package is from the AUR is by no means a sinecure practice.
