The latest freeType2 package (v2.10.3) in official Arch repos is shipped with subpixel rendering enabled now!

I will consider removing this AUR package soon, since it is no longer relevant.

@tornado99 Yes, same.

@amoka, have you verified that it is identical to the patch? as from above it seems to enable four things: table-validation etc.

@amoka, that's exactly what I've said. For everyone who will face such issue:

Edit "provides" line in the PKGBUILD to fix this.

@Hanabishi Seems like Pamac (Manjaro) limitation to me. The provides=('libfreetype.so') in this package is the same as the official freetype2 PKGBUILD in extra. Building this package with makepkg should provide the correct libfreetype.so version, and then, as you know will be able install it with pacman. freetype2 must be removed because it's in conflict with this. Feel free to modify PKGBUILD locally with your desired provides and install it (if Pamac allows this).

@Hanabishi what troubles?

Hanabishi commented on 2020-08-06 10:38

There are some troubles with fact that the package provides libfreetype.so instead of original libfreetype.so=6-64. Edit "provides" line in the PKGBUILD to fix this.

Builds and runs perfectly on aarch64 :-)

arch=('x86_64' 'aarch64')

It looks slightly better than upstream freetype2. Thanks.
