Cairo/Pango/mozilla

August 24th, 2005

During the last days I had to fix several issues because of new GTK. Some changes in mozilla code are needed to make it work (reliably) with new GTK and Cairo. At the same time I’ve started to prepare the next generation of SUSE’s mozilla based packages to use Pango for font rendering. Some adoptions in mozilla code were/are needed to be able to use it out of the box. Now almost all XFT references are replaced by Pango stuff (in pango enabled builds for sure). All this is unfortunately not for SUSE Linux 10.0 (openSUSE), because of the deep changes which were needed for the 1.0.x series of Toolkit apps. (They have no Pango support for font rendering at all, even though Fedora/RedHat ships (almost) all needed patches to enable it within their RPMs.)

    HI!

    My suse version is 9.3-i386. I’ve upgraded my gnome system with your new cairo package (from http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/9.3-i386/RPMS.gnome), but gnome system doesn’t start directly. The problem is that the gnome-session was linked with an older version of cairo. I think that the gnome-session should be recompiled.

    Sincerely,
    Lajos
