I get this warning early in the package() step.

libtool: warning: remember to run 'libtool --finish /usr/lib'

And I get about 15 of these warnings during the package step.

libtool: warning: '/home/aslevy/aur/freetype2-infinality/src/freetype2/objs/' has not been installed in '/usr/lib'

Is this normal behavior?
Thank you

Can you create 32-bit multilib versions of your infinality packages?

dobo commented on 2017-02-16 14:55

Erm, after upgrading harfbuzz and recompiling this everything works. At least for me.

hpstg commented on 2017-02-16 13:48

Any way for this to be fixed/patched/maintained? The fonts really look better with it.

harfbuzz doesn't build :-( The only solution is to get rid of these unmaintained infinality fonts as described here:

To workaround the harfbuzz issue, you need to recompile harfbuzz.

$ sudo abs
$ sudo pacman -Syu
$ cp -ai /var/abs/extra/harfbuzz/ /tmp/
$ cd /tmp/harfbuzz/
$ makepkg -si

With nano you could edit the pkgrel, but it's not required, you could rebuild harfbuzz without editing anything, just rebuild it.

This is already explained by my comment from 2017-01-12.

I'm here because I can't run some programs like deluge. Running deluge gets me :

> ImportError: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates

When I post this on harfbuzz github they tell me that the bug isn't related to them but to this package freetype2-infinality as their package is build against the latest freetype2 package,

See this issue :

I also don't understand why you're able to install freetype2 and remove freetype2-infinality when I have this error message. I was able to replace fontconfig-infinality with fontconfig but it didn't help much with the main problem.
