[Scribus] missing cygqt-mt-3.dll file

Hi there (especially to mrdocs from irc)

On any new cygwin install of scribus from the instructions over at
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Installing_Scribus_on_Win32 there is a
failure.  It is probably best if I just paste most of the discussion
from the wiki into this thread...


(I'm a n00b at this, so don't know if this is cygwin related or Scribus
install) Installing from binaries. Everything looks and installs fine.
However, last step (/opt/scribus/1.2/bin/scribus.exe &) causes this
error, stating that the "cygqt-mt-3.dll was not found. Reinstalling may
help." Reinstalling has not helped.

Any ideas?

Are you sure you have Qt3 installed? --jo-hannes 15:14, 15 Mar

It may be that the path isn't set. Try the following:

Create this script by copying the following lines into a bash shell and
enter RETURN and CTRL-D to close the cat command. (watch for line

cat >/etc/profile.d/qt33.sh export QTDIR=/opt/qt/3.3 export

At last you should reread the environment to activate this settings for
your current bash shell with
. /etc/profile


Unfortunately, this fails (for the entire cat output see the wiki,
though it basically boils down to "No such file or directory "), which
makes me think that this is a PATH problem, possibly caused by some new
stuff in cygwin.

It can be overcome in the short term by typing:

cd /opt/scribus/1.2/bin ln -s
THEN try launching.

But if the path is broken, this could be causing problems elsewhere.

As I never got a full cygwin install without this, could someone who
knows what Scribus should be like on cygwin, test this and see if it has
broken something.

Please note that I have modified the main install guide to put these 2
lines of code in. It should now work, with any luck.

Anybody any ideas?
