Problem installing Scribus on cldx15-17


I am new to Calculate Linux - thanks to the developers for such a great distro!

I have tried to install Scribus, it seems to install OK but no entry is created in the XFCE menus and no bin file is created:

 # emerge -bk app-office/scribus

Calculating dependencies... done!

 # which scribus

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I would like to use cldx as my daily driver but I do need Scribus.

Thanks, Bill

Thanks for the bug. In the near updating icon will be fixed.

Thanks Alexander, I look forward to that. In the meantime I am running Scribus in Xubuntu in VirtualBox in Calc Linux with a shared directory between the base system and VM! It works, but of course it would be better to be running Scribus natively in Calculate Linux.

Thanks for all your work on this great distro!

Cheers, Bill

UPDATE: Scribus is now working!

There are two issues:

1) After installation Scribus was not added to the XFCE menus until after a re-boot of the machine or maybe logout-login, I don’t know I did not test this, I just noticed the presence of Scribus in the Graphics menu today. It was certainly not there immediately after installation.

2. The executable name meant that I was not able to find it:

$ whereis scribus-1.4.6
scribus-1.4: /usr/bin/scribus-1.4.6 /usr/lib64/scribus-1.4.6 /usr/share/scribus-1.4.6

I hope this helps. I can now stop using Xubuntu :slight_smile:
