To build without such errors:

ttf.c:28:30: fatal error: freetype/ftoutln.h: No such file or directory
#include <freetype/ftoutln.h>
compilation terminated.

Edit PKGBUILD and in section build() before make add:

#Fix freetype => freetype2
sed -i 's:\(#include <freetype\)/:\12/:' src/libfbsplashrender.c
sed -i 's:\(#include <freetype\)/:\12/:' src/ttf.h
sed -i 's:\(#include <freetype\)/:\12/:' src/ttf.c

I'm disowning this package because I no longer use fbsplash and the related packages and currently do not have the time to set up a test machine to help maintain the package. If there's anyone out there that wants to maintain these packages, it would be greatly appreciated :).

Hi,

I hope I've come up with a solution more or less done The Arch Way (TM) now. I've posted an updated PKGBUILD here:

http://pastebin.com/2Uvgmk3z

This incorporates the current version of freetype2 (2.5.0.1-1), so I use the patches from freetype2 in ABS, which are here:

http://pastebin.com/XVGThn7d
http://pastebin.com/Y6i86mpx
http://pastebin.com/7iicpjpK

I also make some patches to splashutils 1.5.4.4, which are here:

http://pastebin.com/DHP16xsJ

With this PKGBUILD and these patches, as well as the other files and patches provided with the current version of fbsplash, this will hopefully build and work correctly. I've been testing it for a few days with no problems.

HTH.

@Parakoopa:

This was a bit of a pain to diagnose. When I tried to rebuild, I kept getting this error message:

"/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lfreetype"

But the libraries for freetype2 were installed. Happily, Ubuntu forums bought me a clue:

http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-852631.html

fbsplash needs to link against the static library, libfreetype.a, but this is no longer provided by freetype2 since its upgrade to version 2.5. So, we need to install a local alternative package to freetype2. Here's the PKGBUILD I use for what I've called freetype2-static 2.5.0.1-1:

http://pastebin.com/xTysu1cg

Once freetype2-static is built and installed, patches are needed to get fbsplash to build against lcms2, since libmng version 2 builds against lcms2, not the older lcms version 1. I also included fixes to get autoconf/automake to stop complaining. This is the patch I've put together:

http://pastebin.com/pbRznd5C

Finally, here's a patch to update fbsplash's PKGBUILD:

http://pastebin.com/GTqQsgwi

Using a static library-built freetype2 package along with this revised PKGBUILD and new patch to get fbsplash to build against lcms2 should get things working again. After all of this, I was able to rebuild uswsusp-fbsplash and it seemed to work fine.

HTH.

Doesn't work anymore because of freetype 2.5

@cmsigler: Updated the PKGBUILD to consider the binaries that were left floating in the sbin directory and updated the source URL to point to a working source.

Hi,

After the update to ver. 1.5.4.4-14, on my system there are still a few binaries in /sbin/ directory:

sbin/
sbin/fbcondecor_ctl.static
sbin/fbcondecor_helper
sbin/fbsplashctl
sbin/fbsplashd.static
sbin/splash-functions.sh
sbin/splash_util.static

Also, I used the following as the source URL:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/fbsplash.berlios/splashutils-${pkgver}.tar.bz2

As always, HTH.

It looks like the source is down or has been moved.
