Question make fails because of librreetype.so


When I type make, I get the following error:

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfontconfig.so: undefined reference to symbol 'FT_New_Face'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'FT_New_Face' is defined in DSO /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfreetype.so so try adding it to the linker command line
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfreetype.so: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [aegisub-2.1] Error 1

What's going on? How can this be fixed?

What is it you are trying to build?
What version of Ubuntu is this?
Where did you get the source you are trying to build ?

Did you Google the error ? "undefined reference to symbol 'FT_New_Face'"

I'm trying to build aegisub in Ubuntu 11.10. The source is from http://www.aegisub.org/

I googled the error, but didn't find anything that I could understand.

Suggest :
Use the binary aegisub, aegisub-2.1.8-linux-glibc27-x86_64.tar.bz2
http://ftp.aegisub.org/pub/archives/releases/linux/

tar xvf aegisub-2.1.8-linux-glibc27-x86_64.tar.bz2
&& cd aegisub-2.1.8-linux-glibc27-x86_64/ && ./aegisub-2.1

Works OK on the 64bits Ubuntu 11.10 .

Yes, the binary works, but it doesn't work well. For instance, the menu at the top isn't showing.

I remember that a long time ago I was able to get this to compile but forgot what I did. I remember that when I finally got it working it was better than the binary that's supplied.

odd the "aegisub-2.1.8-linux-glibc27-x86_64.tar.bz2"

shows the top menu on OpenSUSE 11.4

now Ubuntu 11.10 is using gnome 3 ? right ? -- that might be a problem
the tarbal was last updated in 2010 -- 2 years ago .

now the source
the README and INSTALL state " To be written. " -- not a good sign .

when ./configure finished ( i am using gcc 4.5 ) at the end is a list of just WHAT will be built
-- for default "./configure"
Code:

  Hunspell:              no  
  universalchardet:      yes
now i am missing a few things
the ffmmpeg IS WRONG it is installed but the current ( was the experimental)


so what is in your configure.log for this
what did it find and not find ?
you might need to pass a lot of things to configure
see:
" ./configure --help "

No "Top Menu" ? May be a 'Gnome 3 only' issue ? Ref. post #6
This is aegisub-2.1.8-linux-glibc27-x86_64/ in (K)Ubuntu 11.10 .

Not Gnome, but KDE 4 is used.

But the same appereance issues may happen, if you could compile aegisub yourself ?

The menu is missing. It says things like "File." If you press alt+F, you can still access it and use the arrow keys to move around.

I made some changes so that instead of gnome 3 I'm using xfce.

Output of ./configure (using gcc 4.6.1)

you are missing even more than i was ( i do not intend on using this software so i will not be installing it )

it looks like it is using the deprecated OSS audio
not using the current portaudio ( should be the default for ubuntu11 )
not using ALSA also should be a default fall back for ubuntu

no Lua or Perl support

at this point all i can suggest is try the mailing list
http://lists.aegisub.org/mailman/listinfo
but the last thing in the archive is from feb 2011 ( a year old)
the blog
http://blog.aegisub.org/
but the last post was in June 2011
the SVN page
http://devel.aegisub.org/wiki/Developer/SubVersion
was last modified 2 years ago

the project is looking abandoned
