Pango - Xft install problem
I tried to install Mozilla Thunderbird at the weekend, and I get an error
about libpangoxft-1.0.so.0 not being there.
Pango seems to have other libs in /usr/lib (libpangoft2-1-0.so.0) for
example, so I reckoned that it was just missing xft.
After scouting the net, I had a look, and I reckon that I do have xft, I
have freetype2 installed (but I'm confused, because it sounds like that is
supposed to be part of X4.3.0 anyway- which is installed).
The only help I could find on the net about recompiling pango to include
xft was about making sure PKG_CONFIG_PATH was set - I've tried setting this to /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig (where pangoxft.pc is) with no
The only thing I can really see in config.log which might be a clue is that
it seems to not find tterrors.h.
Anybody got any ideas, as I'm just going round in circles now!
