Simplest workaround this freetype bug? Just migrate to SDL2.

The problem still persist. The package is broken

I get an error about missing a missing freetype package which is actually installed:

checking for FreeType -- version >= 2.1.3... no
configure: WARNING:

  The freetype-config script installed by FreeType 2 could not be found.
  If FreeType 2 was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
  your path, or set the FT2_CONFIG environment variable to the
  full path to freetype-config.

configure: error: specified client 'sdl' not configurable (FreeType2 >= 2.1.3 is needed (
$ pacman -Q freetype2
freetype2 2.9.1-1

Edit: Okay, maybe you should incorporate the change at

Any idea how to fix this?

sdl_gfx sdl_ttf is needed, gtk2 is not always installed

debian itself is gtk dependent, you won't put "linux" or "gcc"/"gcc-libs" on a package dependency array. You could, but it's a waste of time because they are included with the system installation

Hmm, the debian freeciv-sdl package doesn't have any gtk depencys.

when you run it over firefox (for example) it also doesn't shows GTK, but, you know it uses GTK

Is this not just the reason for the sdl version instead of the regular gtk version?
When you run ldd on freeciv-sdl you see no GTK: (0x00007ffff398c000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e917000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e619000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e3c9000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e130000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071df14000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071dcf7000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071da58000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d6ab000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d49b000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d285000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d081000)

sorry by repost:

it is also a graphics interface, but, graphics means the game texturesm etc. The game buttons and generic inteface to interact whit it keeps being gtk2

jorge_barroso commented on 2013-03-01 00:40

because it's graphic interface is gtk2, sdl is a sound interface.
