Configure gives nonsense error at "freetype2 not found" when missing other packages instead
|Reported by:||php4fan||Owned by:|
|Blocking:||Reproduced by developer:||no|
|Analyzed by developer:||no|
Summary of the bug:
How to reproduce:
Follow the instructions at https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Ubuntu
I get this error:
ERROR: freetype2 not found using pkg-config
Either something is broken or the installation instructions are incomplete.
(I'm selecting "build system" as the component. If something is missing from the above guide, then it should be "documentation")
I already searched and found age-old threads mentioning the very same issuem, but they all claim it's fixed and no working solution is mentioned.
