Description Alexander Wessel 2022-11-09 21:06:05 UTC
Version 1.2.0 of cool-retro-term has been released a good while ago:

In my local overlay, a simple bump (copying and renaming the ebuild) worked fine, so I won't even bother to attach something here.

The patch (qmltermwidget-0.2.0-gcc-10.patch) is still required for the build to work.

Comment 1 Alexander Wessel 2022-11-10 01:14:27 UTC
Sorry, it worked fine because I ran the current master from my local repository accidentially. 1.2.0 *compiles* fine, but fails at runtime:

$ cool-retro-term 
QQmlApplicationEngine failed to load component
qrc:/main.qml:133:5: Type TerminalContainer unavailable
qrc:/TerminalContainer.qml:48:5: Type PreprocessedTerminal unavailable
qrc:/PreprocessedTerminal.qml:98:9: Cannot assign to non-existent property "blinkingCursor"
Cannot load QML interface

They have upstream.

It appears Upstream would just have to release the current state of qmltermwidget, since current master compiles and runs just fine. So for now, nevermind, a 1.2.0 ebuild based on a released version of qmltermwidget won't work.

Oh, BTW, I'd be happy to maintain the package for gentoo (among other things, really), if upstream is responsive enough. The issue tracker does seem to be a bit crowded, though.
