Tidyverse installation fail


Trying to install tidyverse.
(Mac M1, Rstudio)

It fails

  • installing source package ‘textshaping’ ...
    ** package ‘textshaping’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
    ** using staged installation
    Package harfbuzz was not found in the pkg-config search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `harfbuzz.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'harfbuzz' found

I've tried rebooting, still same problem.

Appreciate all help.

Thx in advance!

I believe you need to install harfbuzz at system level. It is not an R package.

See GitHub - harfbuzz/harfbuzz: HarfBuzz text shaping engine
