Issue was in another package: freetype2


I using infinality… :stuck_out_tongue:

Unable to start Plasma session after last update

Update. I just blacklisted package harfbuzz and made full upgrade to unstable branch aaand ALL went fine. Plasma 5 working and KF5 not need rebuild.



IF you using Infinality Bundle Fonts from external repository, blacklist harfbuzz package against incompatibility with freetype2 infinality patched version…

KF5 rebuild is not needed at all.


Again … this infinality :triumph: :grin:


Oh, I was already at number 29… :smile:


WHY you so hurry? Unstable = investigate = debugging. :smiling_imp:

I was joking! :rolling_eyes:


I got the following error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
python2-setuptools: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/init.pyc exists in filesystem
python2-setuptools: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/extern/init.pyc exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.


ahh nice catch , I am also using infinality fonts and got that error…
So I jumped to testing repo after the crash.
Is there going to be a fix until it arrives to testing repo or we will have to blacklist harfbuzz package?


as usual all is working well on Xfce with this update


The only issues I have are some packages I built from AUR. Rebuilding some now.


That mesa release is awesome!

  • minecraft
  • desktop
  • chrome-webgl
    on amdgpu-experimental works now without graphical glitches, even with prime. Thanks!

[REDDIT] PSA: Rebuild all AUR packages providing Python libraries for Python 3.6

OK… New Day, New Way.

I purged whole infinality bundle packages with configs and fonts from bohoomil.com repo against incompatibility with freetype2 2.7.1. Next I installed harfbuzz 1.4.1, reboot system aand all is FINE.

@oberon please add proper note about incompatibility Infinality external repo with harfbuzz and freetype2 and instead of using external repo better is customize ONE bash file:

[Unstable Update] 2017-01-01 - Thunderbird, Cinnamon, Broadcom-WL, Ruby, Flightgear, OpenVPN

The speech-dispatcher package from extra has been compiled against python 3.5 instead of 3.6 in unstable and it should be recompiled.

For some reason it is also missing a dependency that is listed in the arch package, libao. PKGBUILD


the update went well but i had to reinstall all my python modules (lxml, requests, xlsxwriter, pyinstaller, bs4, pyqt5, wheel).


I have restored stock fonts

pacman -S --asdeps freetype2 cairo fontconfig

then I edited /etc/profile.d/freetype2.sh
export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES=“truetype:interpreter-version=38”

went back to unstable and did all the updates
rebooted and all good now :slight_smile:


With the update to python-3.6.0-1 i had several packages from AUR that needed rebuilding, which went without issues. However liblouis, which is a dependency for cups-pdf, needs to be rebuilt against python-3.6.0-1 it’s only available in the extra repo, and there is no AUR equivalent.


I would tend not to expect that. The infinality repo seems to be unmaintained since a few months now.


Thank you! Will fix that.
