make CUPS really optional in scribus

I personnaly use a modified ebuild for scribus- with this patch that *really* makes cups optionnal. It just makes a few modifications in the CMakeLists.txt file, and works fine here

I didn't test the 1.3.5 version, so I don't know if is also affected (because you can't go back 1.3.5.x -> 1.3.3.x).
The developers have just announced in the Scribus user mailing list that there will be a version soon :

So I think I'll preferably check the version, because scribus team still seems to consider that it should be the "official version" :
"The Scribus Team still recommends that all distributions package only Scribus or We recommend the additional packaging of 1.3.5 only if it is marked as a development version and can be installed alongside an existing Scribus 1.3.3.x" (from the offical web site : ).

I think we should have only two versions of scribus in portage :
* (or in a few weeks) marked stable
* (unstable)

No. We will only have >=, which should be marked stable within the next 5 weeks. The 1.3.3.* versions depend on Qt3, which will be masked on Feb. 21st and removed from portage on March 21st. If you want to keep using the Qt3 version, you need to start using the kde-sunset overlay, which is a community-maintained overlay hosting all KDE3 and Qt3 related ebuilds.

Sorry, I forgot the QT3 removal planification. has been released and should be the the final version in the 1.3.3.x series.

Anyways, Scribus doesn't compile without CUPS (even if says CUPS is optional ):

make[1]: *** [scribus/CMakeFiles/scribus.dir/all] Erreur 2

My last attempt to convince scribus developers that CUPS should be only optional was unsuccessfull :-(
But I think Scribus itself should work without CUPS (in facts, works here with an awful & unpublishable hack in util_printer.cpp, and moreover CUPS isn't required under Windows).

Comment 11 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-04-19 20:38:49 UTC
Closing then. Please continue getting cups optional (by build-time configure flag in cmake) with upstream first, then here.
