EDIT: The packages won’t work for earlier distributions than Ubuntu 12.10. You need to have Cairo >=1.12.0 installed in your system.
I’m working to fix that.
But … with a little diysolution ,
Following what follow you will get it
Important Note : i have replace build by install from my initial post and add extra info, because should be the same! Now in my case can build (special folder) and install synfig last dev (like other software).
Original post was not a 1 april joke
In order to install synfig last cairo devllepoment in ubuntu 12.04 familly (x/l/k/t…?..) and should work the same with all .deb linuxlike.
Another boring Note - Working this things, always work better with an updated system…
So how to upgrade libcairo2 and libcairo2-dev up to 1.12 if not present in my repository ?
Adding “quantal main” (ubuntu 12.10) repository can be a solution.Take care to select manually only the .deb needed - libcairo2 and dependencies (or this will be the road to full system migration) - after this little update ,7 .deb or something like, don’t forget to disabled or suppress “quantal main” repository to preserve your system!
Another other boring note - Conflict can occurs …!
Libcairo2 1.12x can cause text render issues in several application, for me was in LibreOffice from 3.?x to 4.0xx
To correct this problem, i have upgraded xorg-server (was 2:1.11 now is 2:1.13) solution from here . Done by enabling momently quantal repository.
I hope this can help.
