Yep, you will need to add -D default_library=both to arch-meson and options=(staticlibs) to pango PKGBUILD for this. Than move pango form deps to makedeps and force static linking to prevent conflict with system wide pango=144 ...

I've tried this, but thought quick patch would be simpler for common user to handle

Thanks, I was not even aware of the problem. And well, lilypond suffers of the same.

If upstream has no quick fix, someone should consider to provide a package pango143, which should be installable alongside pango.

@haawada: I've noticed, inkscape won't build against pango=1.44. I've made a hacky patch to resolve the issue...

"Inkscape now uses a git submodule for the extensions directory. If you have cloned the repository and are not building from the release source code tarball, please note the updated build instructions"

Currently the submodule is uninitialized. Adding this line to prepare() should fix it:

git submodule update --init --recursive

Applied, thanks.

Hi, can you please make these changes?

Update the url field (Launchpad is no longer used):


Change the python2 dependencies to python, since "Inkscape's stock extensions have been moved to their own repository and were updated for compatibility with Python 3".

@lugao feel free to add it to the AUR anyway

haawda commented on 2019-04-19 15:26

I do not think that shallow clones are a good idea at all. I will not incorporate your change. Feel free to keep your package in AUR.

lugao commented on 2019-04-19 12:30

I created a derived package called inkscape-shallow-git to only shallow clone the inkscape repository. The full clone downloads about 1.6 GiB and the shallow clone about 27.72 MiB.

@haawad: Do you think you could integrate it into your package? Thanks!
