Bug Description

The latest trunk has failed to build on Ubuntu Lucid with errors due to a cairomm version issue. The last successful build I have was r11469.

The full failed build log is available at

I note that cairomm/region.h is present in the 1.9.8 package from the next supported Ubuntu version. I can backport that and provide it through my PPA, but I'd just like to check that upping the cairomm version depend was a conscious decision :-)

It was, you should add it to the ppa... we need to add cairomm to the tracking dependencies wiki page it appears.

@Alex - do you think cairomm needs to be added to the tracking page in the wiki (min version > 1.8.x), or is the existing statement «C++ bindings are not included, since their required versions match those of the C counterparts. » covering this issue sufficiently and this report can be closed?

Hmm, yes this should really be set as a hard dependency in I've added a note to the dependency table in the wiki but I haven't yet checked its availability in distros.

I've bumped the cairomm dependency to 1.9.8 in lp:inkscape r11517. I guess this means that this bug should be closed as "Won't fix", because we no longer support builds with earlier cairomm versions. Hopefully now, the configure script will explain the missing dependency rather than allowing a broken build to proceed.

As Cafuego pointed out, this can be fixed in Lucid by backporting cairomm 1.9.8 from Natty.

Changed in inkscape:
status: New → Won't Fix
