Scribus 1.5.4 AppImage not able to run on Arch Linux

Previous topic - Next topic


I downloaded the 1.5.4 AppImage, because none of the Scribus 1.5.4 packages in AUR will let you run it alongside 1.4.7, like you can on Windows.  I was hoping that the AppImage would let me do that.  Just to experiment.

When I run the AppIamage, it gives me this error immediately:

./scribus-1.5.4-linux-x86_64.AppImage: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var

Any idea what this is and how it might be fixed.



the appimage linked from the official scribus download page should work.

a brave user is working on fixing the recipe for the appimages and getting the "nightly" appimages  also to work again.

"technically" he has solved all the issues and the appimage works again on my computer. but there are a few things that need to be cleaned up and i plan to work on it as soon as i come back from my holidays...
