I'm getting build errors when compiling the code

clip needs a reasonably modern C++ compiler and standard library. In most cases where the code doesn't build it's due to some problem with the local build environment. We always appreciate bug reports so we improve our build system, but often the best workaround for the moment is to download a binary release from the downloads page.

The test suite fails on my machine because text placement is slightly offset

The test suite requires that you have the original Microsoft Arial TTF files installed on your machine. To verify that this is the case, run fc-match 'Arial,Helvetica,Helvetica Neue:style=Regular,Roman' and check that it returns the correct 'arial.ttf' file.
