When tried to install, it says

- removing cairo breaks dependency 'cairo' required by cairomm

and some more like these.

I think you should add provides=('cairo') instead of provides=('cairo=1.16.0')

And thank you so much for the fix! My terminal looks sane again =)

@a-darwish I believe I need this package. At least I have not found another way to get the Ubuntu Mono font to render properly in terminal without it (although I would be happy if you know of one).

Do we really need this AUR package?

Ubuntu's own package of cairo v1.15.10-2 (Bionic) does not ship any of the included AUR patches anymore ..

As @eimis states, librsvg doesn't work with this anymore, and dependent applications like emacs fail to load::

$ emacs test.txt
/usr/lib/ undefined symbol: cairo_tag_begin

The fix is simple. As done in extra/cairo, updating this package to v1.15.10 makes librsvg able to find the newly-exported symbols.

Until the maintainer upgrades, I've created the small patch below; to be applied over the cairo-ubuntu git repo itself:


Good luck!

current librsvg doesn't work with this anymore, gives a "undefined symbol: cairo_tag_begin". This results in the system unable to process SVGs at all - UI theme, icons won;t load. Unable to provide more details, sorry.
