Revision as of 07:41, 17 March 2005

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"), 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)



Hence I've created this page for posting notes relating to the ongoing effort to compile Scribus under Cygwin/X11 for win32. Since that is our next best option.

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. :)

Now efforts to compile the latest Scribus for Cygwin/X11 are ongoing, though I haven't been successful yet. However I have had 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:

  381  tar jcvf tar-Scribus13cvs.tar Scribus

  383  make -f Makefile.cvs
