That doen't explain why 220.127.116.11 is easy but 18.104.22.168 is so hard, all
on the same machine.
But I have discovered the problem, and it is an omission with some
answers I have received today. I am trying to do the simple thing
and compile in the download directory. A model cmake line in the wiki
/path/to/cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/path/to/install/to/scribuscmake/
but today at least two listmates have suggested:
Can you spot the difference? It is a missing period.
I am testing it now with an explicit path. From the
directory /usr/local/scribus-22.214.171.124 I am running:
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus-126.96.36.199
if that works I will try the simpler
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=.
Well it seems to work now. No errors on startup! Two things to note:
1 Don't forget the first period in cmake!
2. If you have an existing scribus in /usr/local/bin you have to
rename it (or overlay it) and copy the latest scribus from ~your
work directory/bin to /usr/local/bin. In my case it is in
These points would be useful to put in the INSTALL file. I'm still
going to try to automate the process with a script. Stay tuned!
