Simplest workaround this freetype bug? Just migrate to SDL2.

The problem still persist. The package is broken

I get an error about missing a missing freetype package which is actually installed:

checking for FreeType -- version >= 2.1.3... no
configure: WARNING:

  The freetype-config script installed by FreeType 2 could not be found.
  If FreeType 2 was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
  your path, or set the FT2_CONFIG environment variable to the
  full path to freetype-config.

configure: error: specified client 'sdl' not configurable (FreeType2 >= 2.1.3 is needed (www.freetype.org))
$ pacman -Q freetype2
freetype2 2.9.1-1

Edit: Okay, maybe you should incorporate the change at https://github.com/freeciv/freeciv/pull/11

Any idea how to fix this?

sdl_gfx sdl_ttf is needed, gtk2 is not always installed

debian itself is gtk dependent, you won't put "linux" or "gcc"/"gcc-libs" on a package dependency array. You could, but it's a waste of time because they are included with the system installation

Thaodan commented on 2013-03-09 16:30

Hmm, the debian freeciv-sdl package doesn't have any gtk depencys.

when you run it over firefox (for example) it also doesn't shows GTK, but, you know it uses GTK

Thaodan commented on 2013-03-02 19:13

Is this not just the reason for the sdl version instead of the regular gtk version?
When you run ldd on freeciv-sdl you see no GTK:

sorry by repost:

it is also a graphics interface, but, graphics means the game texturesm etc. The game buttons and generic inteface to interact whit it keeps being gtk2

jorge_barroso commented on 2013-03-01 00:40

because it's graphic interface is gtk2, sdl is a sound interface.
