Compiling scribus with qt creator

<< < (2/7) > >>

Gibbz:
I have made it so it will load without icons.
However the scripter menu entry is not showing in my custom build.

What ide do the team usually use?

a.l.e:
I've modified the tutorial to first mention the https link and then -- for those who have setup the ssh workflow -- the ssh one. thanks for the feedback.

Now, concerning the icons: you have to install scribus before running it:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-manual-development/blob/master/content/qt-creator/qt-creator.md#running-your-own-build-of-scribus

explains you how to do it (it took me some time to find all steps but, now, it should be correct!).

After having gone through those two steps, Scribus will find its icons and correctly run (I've tested it!)


Finally, about the IDE:

- personally, i don't use any (but that was not the question, since i'm not in the team; and i would probably use Qt Creator if i needed to use one...).
- Jean uses visual studio on windows
- Craig probably uses QT Creator (i don't think he is using X Code, even if he works on a mac)
- No idea about the others.
- as far as i know, most people compile from the command line or use Qt Creator on Linux.

May I ask you what are your plans with Scribus? : - )

a.l.e:
Concerning the Scripter entry: you probably need to install libpython-dev ...
(or it might be a python2 / python3 issue...)

Gibbz:
Yeah sure, I am trialing using scribus at work to replace coreldraw. So mostly advertising materials, newsletters and basic graphics.

Ive posted a bug, and now made a patch file (https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=15441) what is the process of getting these changes included? As Im very keen to start using this fix :)

Also have some other bugs I want to look into from a usability standpoint before I can encourage the transition at work...

a.l.e:
hi gibbz,

i only skimmed through the patch... it looks mostly good!

there is only one detail:

- there are some tabs/spaces mismatch ("sadly" scribus uses hard tabs, not 4 spaces)

when working on the scribus you will have to configurate the project to use hard tabs...

and, of course, patches are always welcome!

ciao
