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.

Error #1 with cairo ubuntu related to freetype2.
Kill manually freetype2-* from aur and install one from extra.
Fontconfig issue you should report to fontconfig-ubuntu maintainer

When I try to build it with pacaur, the build fails.

The end of the output is here:

I tried installing with:
pacaur -S freetype2 fontconfig-ubuntu cairo-ubuntu

yes. Same patches. Like it happened with libXft :)

@el_aur thanks, that worked :)

what happened to the patches in freetype2-ubuntu? were they merged upstream?
