This seems to be working properly for me, and eliminates the need for the env variables.


Since 'the move' to Qt5 the builds appear to succeed, I can run Scribus, but I don't have the Barcode plugin showing up within the Insert dialog.
I find that it is listed within the About Plugins, and also is included in the Preferences> Plugins suggesting that it should be available using Insert -> Barcode...

Still trying to narrow down the svn step where it breaks.
18455 works, but that version still required the -DUSE_QT5=1 declaration.

Any suggestions?  Does yoiur latest build include the Barcode plugin showing up in the Insert menu?
