General Discussion / opening up a scribus .sla file does not open the document itself?
« Last post by digirew on September 19, 2020, 03:18:06 am »
Is there a reason why when I double click scribus .sla document files, it opens the scribus application but not the document itself?

I then need to double click the .sla file again for it to open up.

Scripts and Plugins / On Scribus startup script?
« Last post by digirew on September 19, 2020, 03:07:35 am »
Does Scribus have the ability to run a python script on startup? or do each script need to be manually run?

im thinking to have a script that would set various preferences that might be needed. (ie. measurements, zoom levels, page sizes etc).

Unfortunately I dont have the expertise to compile at this time.

I will review the ticket and make comments if needed and hopfully it makes it into the next release.
General Discussion / Save document preferences like zoom levels?
« Last post by digirew on September 19, 2020, 02:43:57 am »
I have many Scribus documents that are very small (for example business card size or smaller).

Is there a way that I can set the zoom level to like 300%, so that when I re-open that document in the future, It knows to open it at 300%? and not default back to 100%?

(some docs I might want 300%, some 400% etc).

Linux / Re: Unable to start Scribus after an update

I did this :
Check my version installed through the package manager, result : 1.4.8-ubuntu18.04-ppa
Than i install all things i could found related to QT4, means this :  sudo apt install qt4-default
Also these :
Code: [Select]
apt install libqt4-dbus libqt4-declarative libqt4-designer libqt4-dev libqt4-dev-bin libqt4-help libqt4-network libqt4-opengl libqt4-opengl-dev libqt4-qt3support libqt4-script libqt4-scripttools libqt4-sql   libqt4-sql-mysql libqt4-svg libqt4-test libqt4-xml libqt4-xmlpatterns libqtcore4 libqtdbus4 libqtgui4 qdbus qt-at-spi qt4-linguist-tools qt4-qmake qtcore4-l10nThis : apt-rdepends --build-depends --follow=DEPENDS qt4-qmake and this one : apt-rdepends --build-depends --follow=DEPENDS libqt4-dev

Couldn't open Scribus anyway.
So I decided to update my whole computer.
I did it and i'm now on Linux Mint 19.3.
I tryed again to start srcibus but doesn't work.
As i say "tryed to", it means, i can see in the Menu that Scribus is there like before. But clicking on it nothing appears.
I tryed to find a way to start it from the terminal but i found nothing.
I also deleted the Scribus15 folder that was from the compilation.
Finally completely purged scribus.

Of course I saw that I could use the APP image. I had a bug with version 1.5.3 so I took image 1.5.1. It works well with this one and i can open my files like before.
But why is it no longer possible to have Scribus installed stably as before? Are we definitely forgetting the previous system?
No difference on the horizon with this Appimage? I will not have a bug or other when i save file or exporting PDF ? (I use scribus all the time)

It is an honor for me to imagine that someone on a train on the planet is guiding me through my problems. Thank you very much for the attention. As far as I'm concerned, I'm at the center of Europe in a country called Belgium.
To be continued pending your feedback on the stability of the Appimage. And then I'll wait for version 1.5. appear in the software manager to reinstall it from there ?

I suggested that link which gives lists of dependencies (since you started by listing ldd).
However a much easier route is to use Synaptic Package Manager (search scribus after opening GUI) to install the package of choice.

we're not on instagram here... thumbs up are completely useless : - )
(despite my small ego boost)

what you can do:

- if you can compile scribus, try out the patch and see how well it works for you (and comment in the ticket)
- if you can read c++ code, review the code and give feedback
- otherwise, read all details in the ticket and try to understand if it is a good approach and comment in the ticket.

sorry for the bad news...

sorry to tell you it only now but: you're on the wrong path.

you don't need to compile scribus. in the worst case, you should use the appimage.
in the best and most likely case, you should fix the state of your packages and install scribus 1.4 or 1.5 through the package manager.

i'm traveling right now, and since i have never used linux mint, it's hard for to me to make a real diagnose.

what is likely not to work: installing and uninstalling again and again the same version of scribus.

what you can do?

in you package manager you can check which version of scribus you have installed.
and which version of Qt4.

by pure chance, they are easy to compare:

- if you have scribus 1.4 you need Qt4
- if you have scribus 1.5 you need Qt5

if you have a mismatch you need to install the version of Qt that matches your scribus version.

with a 19.2 version, there are some chances that you can install both Qt4 and Qt5.
in a 20.x version the chances are big that Qt4 is not there anymore.

of course if mint 19.2 does not carry Qt4, you will need to upgrade to scribus 1.5 and install Qt 5.

hope that helps... without seeing your computer or installing mint there is not much more that i can do for you : - )

and if all this fails: just get the appimage... it's a bit slower, it uses more memory, but it (should) just works!
(you can take the appimage for  1.5.5 or the latest development 1.5.6 appimage).
i can provide the link if you don't find them (as soon as i'm not in a train anymore...)

Scripts and Plugins / Re: Change the height of the document
« Last post by digirew on September 18, 2020, 04:24:50 pm »
All of our Scribus documents have different page widths. However the height is variable based on how much content is placed on the page etc. The page size needs to change based on the content on the page.

While I can copy/paste things into a new document with the appropriate page size, it would be much simpler if I can simply change the page size in an existing doc, especially when dealing with a lot of objects on the page. (at least thats the most efficient way we have been doing it in indesign).
