FTGL Problems

Post: #1
Sorry for not continuing the other thread on FTGL, but I am hoping this post gets noticed.

I downloaded the FTGL Mac project from Henry's site. I also downloaded freetype 2.1.9 and also cppunit-1.8.0 as well. I built all three projects and included the libfreetype.a and libcppunit-1.8.0.a in the FTGL project. After adding the header include paths, I still get the following errors that won't go away:

debug-symbols:off) — (2 errors, 2 warnings)
/usr/bin/c++ -o /Users/roger/Desktop/FTGL/mac/build/ftgldemo.app/ld: warning -L: directory name (/Users/henry/Development/PROJECTS/iSpot/libraries) does not exist
ld: /Users/roger/Desktop/FTGL/freetype-2.1.9/build/libfreetype.a(ftgzip.o) illegal reference to symbol: _inflateEnd defined in indirectly referenced dynamic library /usr/lib/libz.1.dylib
ld: Undefined symbols:
ld: warning -L: directory name (/Users/henry/Development/PROJECTS/iSpot/libraries) does not exist


Any suggestions? Does anybody have a self-contained project with the source files all zipped up and ready to use? That would be VERY cool. Smile

The first can be fixed by adding libz.dylib to your project (from /usr/lib). The last can be fixed by editing the project's search paths to not contain that path. The middle one has me baffled -- maybe you need to configure FreeType with LZW support when you build it?

No luck. I already had libz.dylib in the project. I don't know what you mean by adding LZW support. I'm not sure what that is or why it would not be there in the first place.

Thanks for trying, though.

libz.dylib is clearly not being used by the linker, or the first error would go away. I'd suggest trying again, making sure there's a tick next to it, checking the link command that's actually being used, &c.

I just downloaded and built FreeType 2.1.9 and my libfreetype.a contains _FT_Stream_OpenLZW -- do an nm on yours and see if your library is correct at least.
