Description Ulenrich 2019-08-22 12:08:01 UTC
When qtwebengine is installed 
sci-mathematics/rstudio-1.2.1335 emerges successfully. 
I changed dependency from qtwebkit to qtwebengine:
# emerge sci-mathematics/rstudio::pmaci

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

I tried 3 times to attach the build log. This fails with error message:
"Die Webseite unter ist eventuell vorübergehend nicht verfügbar "

I don't think this resolves the issue. rstudio still did not build because I didn't have the USE flag "widgets" set for qtwebengine. Here're the lines from the rstudio build log:

CMake Error at src/cpp/desktop/CMakeLists.txt:122 (find_package):
  By not providing "FindQt5WebEngineWidgets.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this
  project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
  "Qt5WebEngineWidgets", but CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file provided by
  "Qt5WebEngineWidgets" with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "Qt5WebEngineWidgets" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
  or set "Qt5WebEngineWidgets_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above
  files.  If "Qt5WebEngineWidgets" provides a separate development package or
  SDK, be sure it has been installed.

I think the RDEPEND line in the ebuild should be something like:


I set the USE flag and am now building qtwebengine again. I won't be able to confirm if it's fixed yet because building qtwebengine takes more than 9 hours on my machine with an i7 and 16GB of RAM. That's about 3 times longer than it takes to build libreoffice or google Chrome. Can we get a qtwebengine-bin package, please?
