Introduction

In February 2005, Trolltech announced that version 4 of the QT library used by Scribus will be available for Windows under the GNU General Public License (GPL). This brings the possibility of a native Windows port of Scribus a step closer. It's still a long way off though, and not really in anyone's plans. First, QT4 needs to be released ("second quarter of 2005"), and then Scribus would need to be updated to QT4 (a substantial job in itself) then ported to Windows. So it might happen at some point, but don't hold your breath!--Joeboy 13:49, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

There is a new effort to compile Scribus & Qt nativley under Windows by Paul Johnson: The posting on the mailing list : [1] The URL to the blog is http://scribusdev.blogspot.com [2]

However, don't forget we already have one working recipe for Installing Scribus on Win32 using version 1.2.1 binary snapshots compiled for Cygwin/QT3/X11. :)

Scribus for Cygwin

Current status

OK:

Yet not OK:

  • Working procedure for installing Scribus 1.3.* from binaries on Cygwin/X11/Win32
  • Working procedure for installing Scribus 1.3.* from CVS source on Cygwin/X11/Win32
  • Easy to use installer for binary installation of Scribus 1.2.* and 1.3.*
  • Purple page background in Scribus/Cygwin

Discussion

Now efforts to compile the latest Scribus for Cygwin/X11 are ongoing, though I haven't been successful yet. However I have gotten as far as a running a successful configure of the 1.3 version from CVS, and there is a patch available for the 1.2.1 version at the kde-cygwin download area.

Here are some notes from some of the experiences I've had so far:



Here's another snapshot of my latest efforts. --Hap0 23:54, 22 Mar 2005 (UTC)

With the following commands, I already got Scribus configuring fine, but I accidently deleted it again so now with that config it gives an error when checking for qt. The error message in config.log is very similar to the error I got when making scribus after my succesful ./configure.

--jo-hannes 07:12, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Export commands:

export CFLAGS="-fdata-sections"
export CXXFLAGS="-fdata-sections"
export LDFLAGS="-Wl,--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc,--script /usr/local/lib/qt/mkspecs/cygwin-g++/i386pe.x-no-rdata,-lqt-mt"

The error at checking for Qt:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.3) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!

And the error in config.log

Jo-Hanes:

collect2: ld terminated with signal 11 [Segmentation fault], core dumped

shows that ld, the linker that's called by gcc after it finishes compiling the source file, has crashed. That's pretty weird and very likely to indicate a bug in ld (probably the cygwin version).

That said, if it worked before it seems reasonable to expect it to work now. Could you have made some changes to environment variables or installed libraries since then?

--Ringerc 08:16, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)



As i remember, i had installed the cvs version of qt in /usr/local/lib and then it worked. don't know if there were any other switches. now i have the qt-snapshot installed and it doesnt work. variables could have changed, yes. but dunno into what. libraries werent installed as is remember. will try to get it working again.

--jo-hannes 10:52, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)


I just updated my own little code section up above to reflect my recent similar experiences with the addition of a search I ran on the file system for qt-mt.

--Hap0 19:44, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Do you have tried to run the above mentioned link by hand using the code snippet from configure using the flags set by LDFLAGS ? Seems that the LDFLAGS isn't taken.

--RHabacker 23:58, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)



I found a file that is created when configuring Scribus crashes with precompiled qt3 installed. im posting the content here, possibly someone knows what to do with it.
