Description

16 years ago
I have noticed that Mozilla configured with --enable-xft links with libXft.so.1,
but apparently wants libXft.so.2 from fontconfig (it fails to start with
libXft.so.1 because XftLockFace symbol is not resolved). Maybe this is problem
of my system configuration (libXft.so points to libXft.so.1) but anyway I think
it is a Bad Thing (tm).

[blizzard@dead blizzard]$ ldd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2b/components/libgfx_gtk.so
|grep Xft
        libXft.so.2 => /usr/lib/libXft.so.2 (0x4050f000)

Looks fine here.  Something odd going on on your system, maybe?

Yep, libXft.so pointed to libXft.so.1 instead of so.2. Sorry.

Maybe there ought to be a specific check that the library is in fact Xft2 (or
later) and not Xft1. Most people still have (either the old or new version of)
Xft1 along with Xft2 on their systems, and it's possible that libXft.so could be
linked to Xft1, but that's not what Mozilla needs.
