I had the same failure, and the suggested fix does work. What I find interesting is that is 19 bytes, the same length as, but seems to be the first 19 bytes of A clean reinstall using yaourt produces the same results.

shutter failed for me, too. It file wasn't a symlink, but a regular file:

root@notebook /usr/lib # ls -la libORBit-2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:23 -> -r-------- 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:23 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 456376 11. Mär 09:23 root@notebook /usr/lib # rm root@notebook /usr/lib # ln -s root@notebook /usr/lib # ls -la libORBit-2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:23 -> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:27 -> -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 456376 11. Mär 09:23

It now works again.

I have the same error as @severach. Due to this, shutter fails to build for me.

First I checked the permissions as I got "permission denied" errors from other apps

ls -ld /usr/lib/ Wed 06 Mar 2019 10:57:39 PM CET -r-------- 1 root root 19 Mar 6 22:47 /usr/lib/

After opening the permission, the permission error got away but I faced the following error

"/usr/bin/perl" "-Iblib/arch" "-Iblib/lib" -MGnome2 Gnome2 maps > blib/lib/Gnome2/enums.pod Can't load 'blib/arch/auto/Gnome2/' for module Gnome2: /usr/lib/ file too short at /usr/lib/perl5/5.28/core_perl/ line 193.

@cpharlok: Thanks for the proposed solution! I wonder if it is a problem which is due to some error in packaging, since already three people are affected by it. Are there any further observations which could help to track it down?

@severach: The symlink may be broken, just recreate it

Sorry, I can't reproduce it. Did you try building in a clean build directory? Could you please paste the complete output?

ldconfig: File /usr/lib/ is too small, not checked.
ldconfig: /usr/lib/ is not a symbolic link

I see, thanks for figuring it out! Surprising that the current gnome-common library still suits for compiling orbit2. :) Added gnome-common as makedep in a silent update, once again.

same error, I installed gnome-common and it built fine.

@xiretza: Thanks for the hint, added the make dependency in a silent update.

On a second thought, gnome-common is for Gnome3 and the Gnome2 equivalent is libgnome which, however, would be a circular dependency...
