Hi again! I tried your hint a couple of more times (with reboot in between) and I managed to install! I was probably too quick and eager to get it solved.

Thanks so much!

Hi and thanks for quick answer! I went to .cache/yay/ and deleted libxft-brgra-git directory and then reinstalled and I got the same message as below and exactly the same goes for my second laptop.

@bbaovanc Added automake and autoconf as make dependencies. Thanks for reporting.

This package wouldn't build for me until I installed automake and autoconf. They should probably be marked as make dependencies.

@womp Hi, you can try these steps:

  • Uninstall libxft-bgra-git (by installing libxft using pacman, it will automatically uninstall libxft-bgra-git).

  • Update your system.

  • Remove libxft-bgra-git's build files. It's located in ~/.cache/paru/clone directory if you use paru, or ~/.cache/yay/... (I don't remember) if you use yay).

  • Install libxft-bgra-git again.

Hope it will work.

Updating/installing libxft-bgra-git gives the following message.

libtool: Version mismatch error.  This is libtool 2.4.6, but the
libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.4.7-dirty.
libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.4.6
libtool: and run autoconf again.

If I am not mistaken, curl and xorg-util-macros are make dependencies and should be in makedepends array instead of depends array.

added xorg-util-macros dependency
