Hello. There appears to be a bug in the setup for installing arb via homebrew. I think the issue is linked to X11 not being recognised. Any assistance here would be great thanks. kind regards Matthew

  • Owner changed from devel to westram
  • Status changed from new to accepted

The Homebrew maintainers by now have introduced the breaking change to remove the :x11 dependency completely.

We cannot make any promises, whether a fix will be possible and if so, when it'll become available.
