@mitchhentges Yes, It's a harfbuzz issue however I can't reproduce that error.

Try to do a full system upgrade.

Looks like an issue with libharfbuzz and Infinality (not related to vokoscreen at all):

I'm having an issue building vokoscreen:

So, something about `FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates`? Should I just wait for the next beta release, and perhaps the devs will handle this naturally?

Well, objdump doesn't show it, so maybe yeah.

petronny commented on 2016-09-04 03:49

I found it by building the package with the command 'extra-x86_64-build'(from package devtools). It will create a new archlinux enviroment with only basic packages installed then chroot into it.

Since the binary doesn't need /usr/lib/ to run, I guess it should be in makedepends.

@Petron Most window managers require libxrandr, so it was a little strange. Which window manager do you use? just curiosity.

I've added libxrandr but I can't determine whether it should be in depends() or makedepends() because my window manager (Openbox) already needs it.

Thanks for the report.

../vokoscreen-2.5.0/showkey/QvkShowkeyGetkey.cpp:18:35: fatal error: X11/extensions/Xrandr.h: No such file or directory
#include <X11/extensions/Xrandr.h>

pacman -Fo /usr/include/X11/extensions/Xrandr.h
usr/include/X11/extensions/Xrandr.h is owned by extra/libxrandr 1.5.0-1

Oops, so it should be libxrandr

AlfredoRamos commented on 2016-09-03 19:58

@Petron I don't even have xorg-xrandr installed and it compiles with no problem.

Please give me your full output so I can check.

petronny commented on 2016-09-03 12:51

missing xorg-xrandr as a make dependency(or dependency)

AlfredoRamos commented on 2016-06-23 15:29

@gim sorry, forgot to add the new dependency.

It's fixed now, please let me know if you have any problems.
