Is anyone up for packaging Scribus 1.3.8 for VL6 SOHO? SOHO comes with Scribus 18.104.22.168, which is substantially out of date as far as Scribus releases go.
Scribus now uses cmake for compiling releases. I tried to do it myself, but it's way beyond my comprehension. The directions are at http://docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&page=install4
but I found them WAY, WAY beyond my ability to understand and I kept turning up errors when I ran cmake. Example:
me:$ cmake ../scribus -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/home/me/scribusinstall/
CMake Error at text/CMakeLists.txt:22 (QT4_WRAP_CPP):
Unknown CMake command "QT4_WRAP_CPP".
CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:
No cmake_minimum_required command is present. A line of code such as
should be added at the top of the file. The version specified may be lower
if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project. For more
information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers. Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
I have no idea how to fix these things. Plus the whole instructions page is much too obscure for me. So I decided to look at the SlackBuild script for Scribus 22.214.171.124, which is in our repo. Alas, that script uses configure-make-make install, which is now obsolete for building Scribus. Plus, there is no opensourcebistro video on building with cmake, so I'm at a loss.
The latest version at slacky.eu is 1.3.7--newer than ours but not the latest. linuxpackages.net is way behind on versions.
I'd be very grateful is someone could get a VL SOHO package created.
