@Det: would be nice idea to switch to freetype2 instead of freetype2-ubuntu

I concur what ignisf and guiodic said. Upgraded to Gnome 3.20 and couldn't login anymore. Took a long time to figure out that this package was the cause.

Either python2 or python3 is required to build the package (Official fontconfig package has python2 in its makedepends).

Please fix it, or official devtools like extra-x86_64-build will fail to build the package.

after the updrade fc-cache crash /segfault) and all apps too! Don't upgrade!

Be advised, this package seems to break Gnome 3.20 in testing with the following error:

/usr/bin/gnome-shell: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: FcWeightFromOpenType

I'm getting spam of following message during cache update and some other things:

Unable to update the static FcBlanks

I suppose it is related to default lib32-fontconfig. Any chance for lib32-fontconfig-ubuntu?

Solved by removing some perl-* packages from aur, as is recommended here:
Now it builds fine.

I get this error during build (looks like there is some problem with perl):

Any ideas how to fix this?

I don't know. I even tried to remove the whole .mozzila to reset everything, but nothing. I wish I've never upgraded. :P
