Unable to start Scribus after an update
« on: September 15, 2020, 06:16:44 pm »
Dear all,
Has anyone ever had the following problem:
After updating my system, I cannot launch Scribus.
I uninstalled it then reinstalled it 5 times : it doesn't work.
When I run the program the result is: nothing opens, not even a welcome image ...
I have searched on lots of places I can not find any solution...

I notice there is maybe something related with a bad font ? I did not venture in that direction, not knowing how to do it.

I also don't know which command line I have to indicate here to be able to find a help.
I run Linux Mint 19.2 Tina on a MacBook Pro i7 Mid-2010.

In advance Thank you very much for any help
A.

Since you are running Linux (I am on Ubuntu 20.04) it should be easy to run through some troubleshooting tests.

First can you run in terminal

scribus -v

to read the version.

Next

scribus -h

to see the options.

Next since you mention fonts run

scribus -fi

to get font info.

And so on until you can pin down why scribus does not run.

Hello & thank you very much for the fast reply :

When I write the codes there is already a problem :
Code: [Select]
root@gvp-MacBookPro:/home/gvp/.scribus# scribus -v
scribus: symbol lookup error: scribus: undefined symbol: _ZN12QApplication10commitDataER15QSessionManager

And same with scribus -h & scribus -fi. It's strange no ?

Looking at this strangeness I find a similar error in an old post here : https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-438568-start-0.html
They talk about an error with QT but I don't know what it is.

The code ldd /usr/bin/scribus is giving me the followed result :

which version of scribus did you install?

from where did you get it?

somehow, it looks like you're trying to start a scribus 1.5 on a system with qt4 or a scribus 1.4 on a system with qt 1.5...

I agree. A cursory comparison of my output using same ldd command gives this ..


libQt5Xml.so.5 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Xml.so.5 (0x00007f679bcc1000)
libQt5Network.so.5 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Network.so.5 (0x00007f679bb00000)
libQt5OpenGL.so.5 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5OpenGL.so.5 (0x00007f679baa4000) libQt5PrintSupport.so.5 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5PrintSupport.so.5 (0x00007f679ba2b000)


I have ignored the dependencies which are identical when comparing outputs.

It is clear that Qt5 dependencies are missing.

[P.S.] A further quick search found this which might help explain Qt4/Qt5 de[endencies for different versions of Scribus (I use version 1.5x)

Okay, I surrender. Few hours spent finding the solutions but it doesn't work.
So i followed the page mentionned, this one : https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Building_SVN_versions_with_CMake#Package_Manager
I installed subversion, c++
I Installed QT
I think i installed cmake also but not sure
I downloaded the scribus files which is now on place
I installed the list of dependencies suggested

But then, when i wan't to run the following command in the scribus directory :
cmake ./

I have this result which show that there is errors, and scribus still doesn't install :
Code: [Select]
root@gvp-MacBookPro:/home/gvp/scribus14x# cmake ./
CMake Warning (dev) at CMakeLists.txt:744:

Any idea to get out from this ?
Before that i also try this process :
delete the folder named Scribus, and purge scribus completely, than i went into the Linux software manager, install Linux and than :
nothing appeared as mentioned.

I don't understand where all these problems are coming from whereas Scribus had previously worked wonderfully.
Thanks in advance for any track.

hi archibaldix

there are a few things here...

the most important ones: you are following instructions for scribus 1.5 but got the code for scribus 1.4...

for 1.4 you need qt 4 which you will probably not get so easily on up to date linux distributions.

but you should probably compile scribus 1.5 anyway : - )

i also notice that you're compiling scribus as root. that's not really a good idea.

and running cmake in the main scribus directory: not so good either.

i have some compiling instructions that are now a bit older but should be good enough:

http://www.impagina.org/learn/development

good luck and do not hesitate to ask further questions!

ciao

Ok indeed i was doing the install in the 1.4.8 version of Srcibus.
Now i tryed the 1.5 and not being in root,
But it seems there is a problem that stay in place

I will try again to find a solution. Any help welcome. Thank you so much.

that's simple and "in your face" : - )

as so often, errors are best read from the end and there it is: your qt is too old.
you need at least qt 5.11.

for ubuntu it should be pretty easy to add beineri's PPA...

Still difficult for me. Thanks anyway.

Well : sure now, i install QT version 15.4.0, means it' should works.
But it doesn't work when i try the cmake code.
I understand that maybe qmake don't recognize that i install an other version of QT or something like that.

The following code report :
Code: [Select]
gvp@gvp-MacBookPro:~$ qmake --version
QMake version 3.1
Using Qt version 5.9.5 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu


So i tryed to change the QT version used, following this :
https://doc-snapshots.qt.io/qtcreator-4.0/creator-project-qmake.html
But doesn't work, qmake --version give me the same result.

I tryed also this :
https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/116254/how-do-i-change-which-version-of-qt-is-used-for-qmake
but doesn't work.

How to make QT 15.4.0. operationnal ?
Still the Question. Thanks in advance for any tracks.

scribus does not use qmake but cmake...

if you cannot remove the other version of Qt, you need to get cmake to find your version of Qt.
from what i've found online, you should add the path to Qt to  CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH

(...) I remove all the version of QT, then reinstall QT 15.4.0.
The code result is this one (a bit different than previous):

Means as you said, that i need indeed to add something to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
This is where it gets complicated for me. I just figured out how to change this for a few hours, reading tons of pages (but probably not the good one). I can't do it.
CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH >> Is this a text file to edit? Do i have to edit something? Where can i find it & what should be the command lines ?

Great Gratitude in advance for any help,
A.

I could find here a way to do something with the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH :
https://askubuntu.com/questions/633826/default-installation-prefix-qt5-qt5-widgets-ubuntu

I follow the process by doing the explaining detail here
$ CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH="{Path of gcc_64 under recently installed qt folder, example: $HOME/qt5/5.7/gcc_64}"

Between the {} i try first to point the gcc_64 folder as described,
I started the cmake code again but same error like before.
Then Between the {} I try to point the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cmake/Qt5Core/ folder as described in the error

I also noticed that the error report a bug considering the version (5.9.5), only after installing this package ; sudo apt install qtbase5-dev
If i purge this package than the error is speaking about a file that is no founded (this one : qt5core-config.cmake)

just a short question that could speed up everything:

why are you compiling scribus?

Why I compile scribus ; I don't know myself, i followed the message from Dragonfly saying i need to go to this link :
https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Building_SVN_versions_with_CMake#Version_1.5.x

My goal is simply to use Linux as before updating my system, which version is used does not matter to me.
As stated at the beginning (and I just tried again & same result): when I install Scribus from the software manager ; the installation is successful, but then ; unable to launch the application. I click on the icon and there is nothing going on.
