Description Stefan de Konink 2022-01-31 19:09:09 UTC
Since we don't have Qt6 in gentoo yet(?) this breaks on configuration.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2022-01-31 20:30:38 UTC
Just needs -DWANT_QT6=OFF
Comment 2 Miroslav Šulc gentoo-dev 2022-01-31 20:52:31 UTC
unfortunately that did not help. it seems only qt6 is supported now.
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2022-01-31 21:50:39 UTC
Interesting. Wouldn't have expected scribus of all things to make such a move.
Comment 4 cyrillic 2022-02-02 18:56:00 UTC
I have been trying to build Scribus using QT6 from the qt overlay and dev-qt/qt5compat:6 from my newstuff overlay.

Things have been pretty broken for a couple of days now, but it looks promising :)
Comment 5 Craig Bradney 2022-02-06 11:50:39 UTC
The normal user should be using 1.5.8 which is in our Version15x branch. Please switch "normal" ebuilds to that. If scribus-9999 is the bleeding edge for those that like brokenness, then its ok to follow trunk, but its Qt 6.2 or higher only these days. Yes it builds and runs now though.
Comment 6 Craig Bradney 2022-02-06 12:00:19 UTC
Note hunspell and python3 now required.
Comment 7 cyrillic 2022-02-06 23:37:41 UTC
app-office/scribus[-osg] builds and runs now for me.

... the code supporting OpenSceneGraph still needs a little help.
Comment 8 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2022-02-11 11:17:54 UTC
I'd suggest dropping the live ebuild from gentoo.git.

I'd suggest adding Qt6.

Go ahead and do it then.

This makes sense because the current scribus-9999.ebuild is written for qt5 which is no longer useable, and also because the top level CMakeLists is split into 4 files which does not play nicely with the cmake.eclass .

If anyone would like to play with Scribus, this ebuild could use improvement, but it does work as-is.

Not in ::gentoo packages I am using :

Toolchain :
  glibc-2.35 llvm/clang/lld-13.0.1
