Build Scribus 1.3.6.svn in Ubuntu 9.10

Something to pass the time while I figure out why it won’t build on OpenSolaris…

Assuming a base, freshly patched install of Ubuntu 9.10 x86, install these packages using Synaptic package manager:

subversion
cmake
libcups2-dev
libtiff4-dev
python2.6-dev
g++
qt4-qmake
libqt4-dev
libxml2-dev
libcairo2-dev

Installing prerequisite packages using Synaptic package manager

Then:

mkdir ~/scribusinstall
mkdir ~/scribussource
cd ~/scribussource
svn co svn://scribus.info/Scribus/branches/Version135
cd ~/scribussource/Version135/Scribus
mkdir builddir
cd builddir
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=~/scribusinstall
make
sudo make install
cd ~/scribusinstall/bin
./scribus

Scribus 1.3.6.svn splash screen

Install and/or run qtconfig to fine-tune the look and feel of Qt-based applications (on Linux, sudo apt-get install qt4-qtconfig).
