Summary0011162: on debian we should need poppler-qt4-dev instead of poppler-private-dev
Descriptionafter a long time, i have given again a try at compiling scribus with poppler on debian.

this time i went a bit further and had a longer chat with the poppler debian maintainer.

it seems that the way scribus is using poppler is not 100% correct. while i could not understand the details, the result is:
- currently on debian you have to install libpoppler-private-dev to get scribus to compile with the poppler bindings
- it would be better if it would use libpoppler-qt4-dev (or libpoppler-cpp-dev)

the poppler debian maintainer is suggesting that we should not use the core library but should use one of the three official APIs (probably the qt4 one).

franz, can you please get in touch with the poppler developers (mailing list?) and check what needs to be done?

Sorry, but we need the core library to do the import stuff. With the other librarys you can do rendering, but not importing. You need the OutputDev.h to parse the complete PDF, and this header is only in the core library available.
