Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-12-20 21:45:17 UTC
Qt4 and poppler[qt4] are going away.

Looking at the homepage full of commercial talk (grep source is unsuccessful), is this still a thing?
Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-12-20 21:52:08 UTC
Amazingly, there's a patch found at Debian.

With the attached ebuild and the attached patch I was able to emerge diffpdf with qt5 and poppler-0.61.1.
