Removing nerd-fonts-fantasque-sans-mono breaks dependency 'nerd-fonts-fantasque-sans-mono' required by garuda-wayfire-settings


Unable to run garuda-update successfully because of the above conflict, if I remove garuda-wayfire-settings with garuda-fish-config, then I can update, but after that I'm unable to reinstall these because of the same font conflict.

sudo pacman -Rdd nerd-fonts-fantasque-sans-mono && sudo pacman -S ttf-fantasque-nerd

solved the problem, but I didn't find what double d means in pacman info, one d is to bypass dependencies, but double?

From the Pacman man page (I have emboldened the last sentence):

-d, --nodeps

Skips dependency version checks. Package names are still checked. Normally, pacman will always check a package’s dependency fields to ensure that all dependencies are installed and there are no package conflicts in the system. Specify this option twice to skip all dependency checks.

From the ArchWiki

To remove a package, which is required by another package, without removing the dependent package:

Warning: The following operation can break a system and should be avoided. See System maintenance#Avoid certain pacman commands.

# pacman -Rdd *package_name*

Thank you. Do you know about some intent to solve this dependency race on fonts with Wayfire? We should avoid to break the system with such operations....

Yes, I believe SGS just submitted a commit to fix this issue: Update file PKGBUILD (8d9b6bf6) · Commits · Garuda Linux / Themes and Settings / Settings / garuda-wayfire-settings · GitLab

Thank you for bringing the issue forward. :+1:

Another issue we noticed is with the stock install of Wayfire the font in Alacritty is kind of broken looking. You can fix this by changing the font in .config/alacritty/alacritty.yml from FiraCode Nerd Font Mono to something else--or just comment out or delete the whole font section and it will default to the Alacritty font which is not broken.


Ok, I removed it. :slight_smile:


Thank you guys, keep up the good work, you're the top of distrohoppers :slight_smile:
