Dear Lori,

I checked our package OUTRIDER on the devel branch and I guess that the 
error arises from a misconfiguration on the OSX platform. It looks like 
a problem with the cairo library/package on the OSX system.

── 1. Error: plotting (@test_plotting.R#9)  ────────────────────────────────────
.onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'Cairo', details:
   call: dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...)
   error: unable to load shared object '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.6/Resources/library/Cairo/libs/Cairo.so':
   dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.6/Resources/library/Cairo/libs/Cairo.so, 6): Symbol not found: _FcConfigGetCurrent
   Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.6/Resources/library/Cairo/libs/Cairo.so
   Expected in: flat namespace
  in /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.6/Resources/library/Cairo/libs/Cairo.so

A detailed error message can be found here: 

This same error was already reported in 2015 and fixed pretty fix but 
without stating the bugfix: 

And we are also not the only package having the problem:


Let me know if you need any more information on this and if I can help 
solving this.



PS: I also updated the package to remove the warning.
