Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-03-11 23:15:41 UTC
QtWebKit's time is limited now.
Comment 1 Alexey Shvetsov gentoo-dev 2020-05-01 10:18:35 UTC
It may be not a good idea, but mendeley has bundled qt. So it can be switched to use it.
Comment 2 Johannes Hirte 2020-05-07 10:21:45 UTC
I don't see qtwebkit in the bundled mendeley-archive. It seems the dep is gone.
Comment 3 libo huang 2020-06-03 04:35:09 UTC
QtWebEngine::initialize() called with QCoreApplication object already created and should be call before. This is depreciated and may fail in the future.
Use of deprecated not thread-safe setter, use setUrlRequestInterceptor instead.
Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (5.10.1) with this library (5.15.0)
