Building Pango from source can at times be a difficult process.
If there are packages of Pango available from your operating system vendor, you should use those packages. Virtually all distributions of Linux install Pango by default; in fact, if you are using Linux, Pango may well be rendering the text you are reading at the moment.
Trying to install a newer copy of Pango along side your operating system's version is especially challenging. If you want to do this, we would recommend using JHBuild.
Releases of Pango are available from:
For information about the requirements of Pango, see the Pango README file.
The Pango source code is available from GNOME's GitLab.
You can clone the source code repository using:
git clone https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/pango.git
The easiest and recommended way to build Pango from the repository is to use meson. It handles automatically downloading and building the dependencies of Pango as subprojects.
