Does not build on my machine:
Code:
...
checking for correct ltmain.sh version... no
configure: error:

*** [Gentoo] sanity check failed! ***
*** libtool.m4 and ltmain.sh have a version mismatch! ***
*** (libtool.m4 = 1.5.24, ltmain.sh = "1.5.24 Debian 1.5.24-1") ***

Please run:

  libtoolize --copy --force

if appropriate, please contact the maintainer of this
package (or your distribution) for help.

The end of src_unpack should probably be:
Code:
eautoreconf  # inherit autotools
elibtoolize  # inherit libtool

With the obvious inherit line modification.

Notice my pkgbuild:
Code:
autoreconf -fi || return 1

I can confirm that appending "autotools" to the inherit line and adding
"eautoreconf" above "elibtoolize" fixes the compilation problem ...

It seems like redigesting must take place:

Code:
emerge cairo
Calculating dependencies... done!
>>> Verifying ebuild Manifests...

!!! A file listed in the Manifest could not be found: /usr/portage/local/layman/font-overlay/x11-libs/cairo/files/cairo-1.5-libtool-2.2.patch.bz2


Manifest still has a ref to non-existing file.

I had the same experience. I believe I did everything correctly including the patched fontconfig and setting the fontconfig directive for the LCD filtering. I've reverted back to 1.4.x for now.

Has anyone tried renaming the ebuild to .20?

Also, boniek if youre still looking for hosting and dont mind using git we can give you a repo on the einit.org server :)

Replying to myself, yup, works clean with a simple ebuild rename.

cairo-ubuntu has been bumped to 1.5.20 with new libtool patch, if you Gentoo people are interested :wink:

Edit: And it has new dependency: pixman>=0.10.0

Edit2: Fixed URL for cairo-ubuntu because the Arch AUR is so stupid that it lets anyone delete the package!

How do the Ubuntu patches differ from the newspr patches?

The Ubuntu patches are the best in the universe :P

Unless you've got a crappy monitor, or couldn't be bothered to configure ~/.fonts.conf properly.

It seems that you would need freetype, libXft, fontconfig and cairo with the patches?

Is it noticeably better than newspr once you have all that (answer my question straight, monkey-man! ;p)

No. I've not been given any bananas.

And anyway, these questions are already answered about a zillion times in this thread, so read it.

*me hands over some bananas*

Ok, lemme dive through thread ... aah, I see. so we're already using the ubuntu patches, basically. Cool.

The usefulness of libtool patch for gentoo is debatable given that its been hard-masked at the root level of all the profiles, but I guess it would be cool to have :)

I'd whip up an overlay on einit.org/jyujin.de with 1.5.20 and the libtool patches, but I'll wait for boniek's response.

btw: I see that freetype2-ubuntu is involved, does gentoo need a patched freetype2 as well?

for me renaming the ebuild to .20 and updating also results in bad looking fonts, i've changed nothing else, just updated cairo, should i make more changes.

I too think that my fonts looked better before updating to 1.5.16, maybe we should try to get the ebuilds put together using the Ubuntu patches.

I've got that mostly done - I'm testing them right now in fact, so far so good.

The ubuntu patches are /large/ however, so I've made freetype|fontconfig|libXft|cairo use the 'ubuntu' USE flag :P

I'll post a tarball in a bit so you can test them yourself.

Mk, here it is: http://jyujin.de/~creidiki/fontlibs-ubuntu.tar.lzma

These apply the whole of the ubuntu/debian patches, apart from those which are entirely debian/ubuntu specific - you have been warned :)

edit: They all work good now. cairo and libXft are the same as the ones on boniek's overlay. Ubuntu cairo has no extra patches, they still use the same 1.5.12 newspr patch we do, i just updated it to 1.6.4. Their libXft has some extra stuff, but its a mess of a autohell makefile stuff I'm not gonna touch with a 50-foot pole. So really its just fontconfig and freetype:2 stuff on top of what we had already.

lzma?? Just use tar.gz or tar.bz2 like the rest of the planet :wink:

Anyway, it's already out-of-date - see cairo 1.6.4 8)

Edit: Some idiot has deleted cairo-ubuntu from the Arch AUR it seems, so here's a copy.
