SYNOPSIS

freetype-config [options]

DESCRIPTION

freetype-config returns information needed for compiling and linking programs with the FreeType library, such as linker flags and compilation parameters. Alternatively, it can be used to query information about the FreeType library version installed on the system, such as the installation (directory path) prefix or the FreeType version number.

This program is part of the FreeType package.

OPTIONS

There are two types of options: output/display selection options, and path override options.

    Output selection options

Only one of the output selection options should be given at each program invocation.
--prefix
  Return the prefix value of the installed FreeType library (the default prefix will be ‘/usr’ in most cases for distribution-installed packages).
--exec-prefix
  Return the executable prefix value of the installed FreeType library (will often be the same as the prefix value).
--ftversion
  Return the FreeType version number.
--version
  Return the ‘libtool version’ of the FreeType library.
--libtool
  Return the library name for linking with libtool.
--libs Return compiler flags for linking with the installed FreeType library.
--cflags
  Return compiler flags for compiling against the installed FreeType library.
--static
  Make command line options display flags for static linking.

    Path override options

These affect any selected output option, except the libtool version returned by ‘--version’.
--prefix=PREFIX
  Override ‘--prefix’ value with PREFIX.
--exec-prefix=EPREFIX
  Override ‘--exec-prefix’ value with EPREFIX.

BUGS

In case the libraries FreeType links to are located in non-standard directories, the output from option --libs might be incomplete. It is thus recommended to use the pkg-config(1) interface instead, which is able to correctly resolve all dependencies.
