Description N. Andrew Walsh 2017-02-18 15:05:00 UTC
Created attachment 464224 [details]
ebuild file

The latest version of media-sound/frescobaldi (just released by its developer as -3.0.0) depends on python-poppler-qt5, of which he is also the maintainer. The former is also available as a git repository. 


However, I encountered two issues with the python-poppler-qt5 that is provided via his git repository: running 'python3 build' as instructed fails to recognize the c++11 capabilities of the compiler, and secondly fails against sip-4.19 due to gentoo bug #606704. 

The attached ebuild addresses the former issue by adding 

export CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -std=c++11"

to src_prepare. The latter issue is addressed by the bug referenced above (and will apparently be incorporated into the next release of sip). 

NB: I am not really a programmer, and have neither the skillset nor the time to work as an official maintainer of this package. I just had to kludge around with a template to get a version of poppler-qt5 working locally for frescobaldi. I hope it helps anybody else.
