Patch for 1.4.4 ebuild
Patch to keep session compatibility
Description Luke-Jr 2013-09-22 17:21:27 UTC
Created attachment 359250 [details, diff] Patch for 1.4.4 ebuild I've got QupZilla building with Qt 5.1.0. This might be worth prioritising, as QupZilla with Qt4 doesn't really work reliably (it gets corrupt fairly often requiring a restart), and doesn't support modern HTML (QtWebkit's fault). This patch depends on eclasses in the qt overlay.

Created attachment 359252 [details, diff] Patch to keep session compatibility This is NOT currently used by the ebuild, but could be. It makes Qt5 QupZilla compatible with Qt4 QupZilla saved sessions.

This also depends on #459690 for dev-qt/linguist-5.1.0 My overlay (layman -a luke-jr) has everything necessary.

Thx for your work. I also tried to create a qupzilla ebuild that supports qt5, but at that time there was no support for qt5 qmake in the eclasses. In your ebuild there are still some issues wit dependencies. At least qtwebkit[widgets] is missing widgets is needed). I will use your ebuild this afternoon and have a look if there are other issues (need the help of a more powerful machine to build Qt5). I think getting qupzilla built with Qt5 is the only way to get a crash-free (or -reduced) web-experience, as nobody wants to put up qtwebkit-standalone :/ https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=388207 (at least there is no visible advancement)
Comment 4 Luke-Jr 2013-09-29 14:01:02 UTC
Personally, I find Qt5 QupZilla to give me far more problems (lockups). The author has recommended that the only working-well solution is standalone qtwebkit...
