Re: cairo 1.1.2 snapshot released

Hi Fred,

I installed cairo in /usr/GNUstep/cairo, but the gnustep-back build crashes on: /usr/GNUstep/cairo/include/cairo/cairo-ft.h:48:10: #include expects "FILENAME" or <FILENAME>

Setting the macro to freetype/freetype.h or freetype2/freetype/freetype.h makes the problem even bigger.
Any ideas?

My freetype-config says it is version 9.5.3

Thanks,

Dennis

With this publicly available there is finally a version of cairo that
should work with the GNUstep cairo backend and does not require to
follow the cairo git repository.

After compiling and installing cairo (.configure; make; make install)
you need to configure the GNUstep backend with the following command:

./configure --disable-glitz --enable-graphics=cairo --with-name=cairo

then compile and install it as well. After that you have to select the
backend named cairo:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSBackend libgnustep-cairo

Now you will be using the cairo backend for all GNUstep applications. To
switch back to the standard (art) backend use:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSBackend libgnustep-back

The cairo backend is still highly experimental, images wont be displayed
correctly and scrolling gives horrible results. Other problems are quite
likely.

Feel free to play with it and improve it.

Cheers
Fred
