I’m seeing ‘shaping failure, expect ugly output’ and my application is crashing (linux, pango 1.36.8)
I can see that a call to pango_fc_font_face_lock has failed in basic_engine_shape (basic-fc.c)
My application runs correctly on Windows with Mingw-w64 generated libraries, but I can’t see what could be causing my error on linux.
I’ve started tracing fontconfig debug messages, but they don’t appear to show a problem.
Can anyone suggest where I should look, please?
I had an old cairo library that was being picked up rather than the one I thought I was using. Get rid of that and things look much better.
