Thanks rzei.

Doing the symlink trick works for me too. Why not changing the published package itself to use the system libfontconfig then?

rzei commented on 2016-04-19 22:09

Another workaround that works for me is creating a new PKGBUILD with

ln -sf "/usr/lib/" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/insync/"

added in the package() function. This will replace the bundled from insync with a symlink to the system one.

Thanks @Arthur. That's all I need, as I never used the gui anyways. Not sure why I didn't think of that, but I appreciate that you did!

insync start --headless

Another workaround is to start insync headless, so you can keep the latest version.

insync start --headless

This support thread mentions a 1.3.7 version to be available:

Although the issue reported there is regarding Qt libraries with Debian in that case but I created a new PKGBUILD using the Debian 64bit version available, packaged it, installed that 1.3.7 version and had no issues starting insync GUI again.

Thanks rzei - I downgraded pango as per that thread and it works. Hopefully insync fixes this soon.

The issue mentioned in the posts below has also been reported in the insync support forums [1]; as a workaround one can downgrade to pango 1.39.0-1.

I can confirm rzei.

$ insync start --no-daemon
./insync: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: FcWeightFromOpenType

Since a recent system upgrade, insync does not start anymore for me:

$ insync start --no-daemon
./insync: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: FcWeightFromOpenType
