[Scribus] 1.3.5svn compile error on Ubuntu Gutsy

That's alright, your hints were very helpful.

I think this exercise was extremely useful, and I hope others will too. I found the cmake output to be misleading (especially in combination with Synaptic not reporting installed packages correctly).

When I ran cmake it said it found cairo, python, libxml2, etc... yet at the end it's looking for variables that are only set if the dev libraries are installed. With Craig's advice and with my experience and a little searching on the web I was able to find the solutions. But would it not make more sense to have the cmake script actually look for the dev libraries and output an error if it didn't find them? Then there would of been no question that that was the problem. This isn't a rant, just a suggestion to improve and make it easier for people like me that are generally spoiled by Mac and Windows installer applications ;-)

Thanks again!

Then please ignore my reply - which I sent literally seconds before my 
mail client flagged my scribus list mailbox as having new mail.
