Most of my qt based programs rendered its font brokenly when I upgraded this to 2.6. I have to roll it back to 2.53.

Please add automake to the dependencies, if freetype2-git doesn't find aclocal it crashes and dies while installing.

Note that it follows the output of "git describe".

Well, it's not added by git, it's added manually in the pkgver(), but that's fine, I gues.

All the best,

It's just a marker added by git to identify the string as a git object hash.

HalosGhost commented on 2014-03-12 14:11

What's the purpose of (or the logic behind) the "g" before the hash?

All the best,

No. It's not needed at runtime.

It's part of base-devel so no need to record it as a makedepend.

"libtool" should be listed as a dependency.

hmm.. I got an 'There is no agent set up to handle git URLs. Check /etc/makepkg.conf' error. my makepkg.conf is up to date and other AUR packages using git builds fine, does this need updating?

oh, and thanks for maintaining this package!

This package is now pacman 4.1-compatible.
