Debug Error "ld: 2 duplicate symbols for architecture arm64"


after the last update I have a problem:

ld: 2 duplicate symbols for architecture arm64
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

This error comes after i run “ionic cordova run ios” or at xcode in a simulator.

The remove and add of the ios platform doesen´t help :frowning:

Can anyone help me? :frowning:

Remove the console plugin. It is included in the newer cordova-ios versions and not required any more.

Post your ionic info output for verification.

Same problem here.

could you please add a step by step guide how to fix this @Sujan12?

Where do you want us to remove this plugin, from the package.json / config.xml? none of this seems to work. Or do you have to run a build task after this?

If you are on the newest cordova-ios version, 4.5.x, just run ionic cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-console.
If not, the reason for the problem is a different one. Post more about what exact command you are running and the complete (!) output of the command.
