[Scribus] Building Scribus on Qt/Mac--more questions
Fri Jan 30 22:26:25 CET 2004
Well, obviously. Perhaps by commenting out the X11/GC reference, I
caused some bug that isn't there in the Linux build. But I'm not
proficient enough with C++ to figure out what it is. I had hoped that
someone with more knowledge than me could point me in the right
direction. I guess that's not the case.
I think I'm going to let someone else pick this up, since I am going in
circles and making no real progress. Because practically all of KDE is
now running natively on OS X, it seems logical that Scribus could be
compiled to do so. The reason I've been trying to get it to go on OS X
is a) Scribus runs very slowly under X11--the additional windowing
causes a lot of overhead and b) I just generally prefer native
programs. But, as I've said before, I haven't gotten far beyond "hello
world" in a couple of different languages (C and Python), so I'm hardly
the guy to troubleshoot C++/Qt bugs without a *lot* of help.
I know one other person has at least expressed interest in porting
Scribus to run natively, and perhaps he can make it work. My dead ends
and blind alleys are documented in the Scribus and KDE-Darwin archives.
If someone gets it to build, I'll be a supportive beta tester. That's
all I can contribute, I suppose.
