|Summary||0015548: Make it explicit that scribus.pro cannot be used to compile scribus|
|Description||i got the feedback that the `scribus.pro` file currently does not work.|
is it a supported way for compiling scribus?
in the forums a user reported multiple errors and finally gave up.
if it's not supported / tested, i would like to suggest the scribus.pro file to be removed from the repository.
currently, the cmake worfklow works well with qt creator...
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||No, using the scribus.pro file to compile scribus is not supported in any way. It's sole use is for updating translation files. And as a consequence we won't remove it.|
i wonder how it can be made clear that the qmake workflow does not work.
would it possible to move the scribus.pro file elsewhere?
or at least a big warning at the beginning of the .pro file?
it's very frustrating for new people to try the qmake way and fail.
and people used to Qt projects, when seeing a .pro file, will assume that the file also does work!
||Not sure here, maybe renaming it to translations.pro would make it also more explicit for what it is used for.|
One of the reason it is currently called scribus.pro is that lupdate has two expectations by default:
1) that the pro file has same name as folder it is stored in
2) that there is a pro file at the top level of the source tree
