I have exactly the same problem. Clean Arch install. ..Harfbuzz version too old.

skyblue commented on 2019-10-26 05:58

The app won't run, I get this error when attempting to run the app from the command line:

(Caret:29544): Pango-ERROR **: 01:52:23.625: Harfbuzz version too old (1.4.2)

/usr/bin/Caret: line 2: 29544 Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped) /opt/caret/Caret $@

I have harfbuzz 2.6.2-1 installed. So, the wrong version of harfbuzz must be packaged with it or referenced somewhere.

That's great - thank you! I get a complaint about the pkgver having a hyphen in it, but other than that it works great.

they move caret to /usr

new PKGBUILD here:

and in after-install.tpl they still assume the executable file is /opt/caret-beta/caret-beta

I think Debian user can not launch caret using terminal :)

and LICENSE is MIT, interesting.

Sasasu: The beta packages are on a separate page: Also - trying your suggestion for modified pkgbuild is giving me:

cp: cannot stat 'opt/caret/*': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I didn't find 4.0 bate in release page. if you have a file named "caret-4.0-bate.deb"

modify PKGBUILD.


then use makepkg to build an arch package.

Can this be updated to include the 4.0 beta versions?

Looks like the yay AUR helper has some trouble with PKGBUILDs that don't end in a newline. Can you add a newline please?

I just tried multiple parameters with another editor and they are expanded correctly: Caret looks like doesn't support multiple filenames on the command line btw, but trying the script with Geany works fine.

A softlink should work fine, not sure about the AUR stance on this btw..

Sasasu commented on 2017-05-06 10:55

In zsh the auto-complete will complement the file name by "\ "
if there many files to open, using double quotes maybe not work as expect..

Maybe i should use a soft link? not a script.
