@ChrisRen thanks! Btw - could you build one for me to pull from docker pull chrisren/xmind using package rather than the code on git (it is outdated and no longer maintained)?

@miomio I just write a post based on your request. check this (

@Torxed. pango-ubuntu requires fontconfig-ubuntu ( and cairo-ubuntu ( which don't install unless you remove the packages cairo and fontconfig from the system. cairo in current repo is v 1.17.2 whereas cairo-ubuntu is building 1.16.0-2 from AUR. fontconfig-ubuntu is also building a lower version than is in pacman repo for fontconfig. I don't get why bother installing cairo-ubuntu or fontconfig-ubuntu at all. They're not for this distro. How does installing them impact other software?

This must be more straightforward than going down two/three levels of dependencies just to get XMind going at the current commit.

Can somebody get this running in a docker container or qemu instead and post a howto? Literally going to this effort shows the extent of the problem.

yay -S pango-ubuntu

Solved the startup issue (Core dumped). Still missing a binary in /usr/bin, so running it is done through ./opt/XMind ZEN/XMind

Not touching this until the maintainer provides install instructions/fix.

I installed a lot a Pango Things.

It seems "pango-ubuntu" is the missing one as after installing it is working fine again

So what are the specific steps to install the latest commit of this package? XMind ZEN no longer working for me despite my previous fix in my message below on 2019-05-25 21:23.

The current workaround could be downgrading the pango library.

sudo pacman -U

I searched around, seems it also happens on Plex(, someone pointed out the problem appears to be that this is an electron app, which has a static copy of an old harfbuzz built into it. Seems that the version is 1.4.2, which is older than what pango requires.(

Downgrading to 1.43 version since the 1.44 version will cause the gtkfilechooserddialog display squared unrecognized characters.(

Throwing gdb at it I get:

Thread 1 "XMind" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007ffff3e9beef in hb_ot_var_get_axis_infos () from /usr/lib/

So it seems to be a problem with an updated harfbuzz version..

Not work for me. (Gnome3 + X11)
