instructions

Step 1 checkout sources: cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvs/fribidi co fribidi2

Step 2 : ./bootstrap ; ./configure ; make ; make install

( use prefix as option because it will replace your system stable one. )

Step 3 : Make fribidi-config wrapper because it now uses pkg-config. You can use the one from the stable version or the following trivial script:


nano /usr/bin/fribidi-config


------------------------------
#!/bin/sh

pkg-config fribidi [email protected]
------------------------------

chmod +x /usr/bin/fribidi-config

now build whatever program depends on fribidi and cross your fingers. the API has changed but not too much. Look here for guidance :

There you go.

  • UPDATE: If you want to compile mplayer againts fribidi2 and you get errors about "FRIBIDI_TRUE" and "FRIBDI_FALSE" being undefined, just edit the corresponding file and replace those occurences with 1 and 0 respectively.

It doesn't work on my pc.

It doesn't work on my pc. It opens but when i open the file it fails. Can it be on account with incompatibility with some other programs?
