Error: cannot find -lfreetype

Luigi D'Alessio's picture

Hello, I'm trying to compile OCCT for x86 ABI but got an error.

I'm using, CMake 3.9.0 gui and Windows 10

No problem in compiling using freetype libs armeabi-v7a.

Following is the details about x86:

warning: skipping incompatible C:\occt\freetype\libs\x86/ while searching for freetype

Make sure you have built using the same NDK + compiler + compiler flags for x86 arch.

Hello thanks for your answer,
I didn't built but I downloaded it here
where are included

What means for 'compiler flags for x86 arch'?
I'm not very skilled on that so if you can give me more details.

Do you know about a specific tutorial to follow on that?

Thank you so much.

The from OCC site is built by gcc, not CLang (used by you for building OCCT).
But probably the x86 build was just broken.

You can try newer version (Freetype 2.7.1) from OCC site:

Do you know about a specific tutorial to follow on that?

You can check building instruction from official site of this library:
