Actually that shouldn't be. See here:

I would figure.

@Det: when you use fontconfig-ubuntu + freetype2 the font rendering is very different form the standard ubuntu font rendering.

@Det: would be nice idea to switch to freetype2 instead of freetype2-ubuntu

I concur what ignisf and guiodic said. Upgraded to Gnome 3.20 and couldn't login anymore. Took a long time to figure out that this package was the cause.

Either python2 or python3 is required to build the package (Official fontconfig package has python2 in its makedepends).

Please fix it, or official devtools like extra-x86_64-build will fail to build the package.

after the updrade fc-cache crash /segfault) and all apps too! Don't upgrade!

Be advised, this package seems to break Gnome 3.20 in testing with the following error:

/usr/bin/gnome-shell: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: FcWeightFromOpenType
