[cairo] libcairo2-dev

Hello Bryce,

I have repeated the installation of Ubuntu 18.04 more than 5 times and
every time this happens right after I add libcairo2-dev.
I've worked on linux installs all my career and believe me this
happens after libcairo2 is installed.

I can give you the exact steps and you're able to reproduce if you
want.   Are you a developer yourself?

Have you gone through https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting ?

Beyond that I'd recommend starting from the regular Ubuntu support
channels.  Not knowing details in your case, best guess is it's not
Cairo but rather some other misconfiguration in your system.
