How to install qpdfview on xubuntu 17.04 Zesty

Asked by ralphl on 2017-06-17

When I look at the qpdfview ppa site, I don't see a version for Xubuntu 17.04 Zesty. Would you tell me how I can install it on Zesty? I had to move forward to the latest Xubuntu for special features.

Hello ralphl,

I guess you the PPA at [1]? There is no package for Zesty in there
because it needs to be created manually by Benjamin (I'll CC him in this
message.) This is pretty time consuming and I think he just has not yet
found some spare time to do the porting.

Until then, the Ubuntu repositories do contain version 0.4.14 imported
Debian. Maybe this is sufficient for you? Or you could try the dailydebs
from [2] which should be pretty stable ATM since I do not have the time
to perform major changes.

Best regards, Adam.

Sorry Adam: I have been using version 0.4.17 beta1. It solved some problems I was having with earlier versions, so I am looking to install that in Zesty. I don't see the Zesty for that version listed in https://launchpad.net/~b-eltzner/+archive/ubuntu/qpdfview. Any chance that this could be added.

Thanks,
Ralph

Hello ralph,

as explain above, I cannot help with Benjamin's PPA, but I guess he just no spare time available right now. The only thing I can offer you immediately is use the daily builds from [2] mentioned above which should be newer than 0.4.17beta1 but will depend on Qt4. Or build from source. Or try adjusting the xenial package from [1] to work on Zesty. (I guess this would just entail replacing xenial by zesty in the Debian changelog file and then rebuilding, but I am not sure.)

Best regards, Adam.

To build from source:

- make sure you have the required libraries, as listed in Readme file. My experience tells me not all of them are listed, particularly the development versions. In my case (Ubuntu 16.04), I had to install libcups2-dev, libqt5svg5-dev, libdjvulibre-dev, libspectre-dev, libpoppler-qt5-dev, qttools5-dev-tools, and qtdeclarative5-dev.

- Download latest source file and extract into a folder.
- cd to source files and run "lrelease qpdfview.pro"
- run "qmake qpdfview.pro"
- run "make"
- run "sudo make install"

That's it.

Can you help with this problem?
