How to bitbake microwindows with freetype2 support

Hi,

I try to bitbake microwindows with freetype2 or freetype support. I bitbaked freetype which is built into

 ./work/cortexa7fh...-gnueabi/freetype/2.6.5-r0/freetype-2.6.5

I exported microwindow to build/workspace/source/microwindows/src (0.91 version)

in the config file under the src, I enabled HAVE_FREETYPE2_SUPPORT

I got error when compiling ./engine/font_freetype2.c

FTC_ImageTypeRec has no member of font.


FTC_ImageTypeRec
typedef struct FTC_ImageTypeRec_
{
    FTC_FaceID face_id;
    FT_Int      width;
    FT_Int      height;
    FT_Int32    flags;

} FTC_ImageTypeRec;

In old version (say before 2.1.0 ) , the structure has font field, but not in the 2.6.5

typedef struct FTC_ImageTypeRec_
{
    FTC_FontRec font;
    FT_Int32     flags;

} FTC_ImageTypeRec;

Can anyone give me a hint what is missing? It seems to me the microwindow bitbaking is not configured to use 2.6.5, which is bitbaked in the build folder.

Thank you,

david Zhou

Hello David Zhou,

The i.MX BSP has the Freetype2 (2.6.5) recipe as you mentioned, and I’m not sure if the Nano-X Windows System (formerly Microwindows) version you are using supports this version of Freetype (the latest 0.92 version of Nano-X Window System does support Freetype 2, however).

I’m not familiar with Nano-X but I would recommend looking through their documentation or into dedicated forums for more insight.

Regards,

Hello Gusarambula

I have downloaded freetype2 version 2.8.1. I copied FreeType2 include files into microwindows folder, and add INCLUDEDIRS+= -I$(MW_DIR_SRC)/$(INCLUDEFT2LIB) as local to microwindows. In other words, make freetype include as part of the microwindows,

It will able to be bitbaked.

Thank you for your email.
