Failing to compile for me on two different machines, opened a bug report on the Github page:

EDIT: Looks like this is due to outdated `freetype2` that comes bundled with `infinality`. Package maintainer is AWOL I guess and hasn't updated it and it's finally starting to break stuff. More info and workaround(s) here:

@jobu did you resolve your issue? iḿ facing the same problem

Solved by removing Infinality fonts with: 'pacman -S --asdeps freetype2 cairo fontconfig'

@eolien: the difference is that `polybar` is referencing a release tag while `polybar-git` pulls the latest HEAD.

what's the difference between polybar and polybar-git ?
polybar pull from github too...

Maybe we should add -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release to the cmake options?

I cannot update (and I don't understand if the problem is a conflict with freetype2):

Thank you if you can help

@edgard, @mrmackie: Should be fixed now.

And if you want mpd support you need to install libmpdclient (listed as an optional dependency)

edgard commented on 2016-11-03 16:32

same error as @mrmackie

mrmackie commented on 2016-11-03 16:09

@jaagr Ah, that did it. Thanks!
