New user build report

edvard
Hi, I'm new here and just heard about LibreCAD a couple days ago.
I downloaded the git contents and compiled.
I must say, I'm very impressed; my compliments to all who are working on this project.

Here's my report:
Debian 6 "Squeeze" amd-64 Xfce running with a custom kernel and 4Gigs RAM.

Everything builds ok, but I get an error at the end
"error: Cannot load 'custom.pro': No such file or directory"
The resulting binary starts up just fine, so I don't think it's significant.

I also have a few minor bugs and feature requests, but I'm sure there are more appropriate threads for that.
As for praises... Thank you, thank you, thank you that there's a "Custom" paper size in the Print dialog!!
I use American paper sizes and QCAD wouldn't let me enter the correct size to make PDF's.

Thanks,
-Eddy

- I built LibreCAD from GIT using Qt Creator on a GNU/Linux
   Fedora 14 computer, and the error you mention above do not
   happen.

- Do you built LibreCAD using Qt Creator, or manually (using "qmake"
   and "make") ?

Please, report LibreCAD bugs here:

Claude,

I have seen that error before.
I have seen this when the user is using qmake from Qt V3,
it's not a compile time issue, but rather a qmake issue.

The custom.pro version allows me, developers or other users
use there own special custom.pro to build a 'special' version
of LibreCAD.

I have used it in the past to create a release build rather then debug builds.

Re: New user build report

Actually, I followed the instructions to use the command "qmake-qt4", then "make".
The build went smoothly otherwise, and Google searches for the error suggested that "custom.pro" was for doing alternate builds (as R. van Twisk explained), so I assumed it was OK.
I then copied the binary and resource folder to /opt/librecad/ and everything runs just fine so far.

Thanks also for the links, I hadn't gotten around to looking for them yet.
Anything specific I can test for to help out?

Hello,

Currently, ClaudeQC is the only one fulfilling the task of QC(quality control, not Quebec City), so help is much needed.
 
In master branch, we have implemented lots of new features, unfortunately, without doing much thorough testing. Please build from master branch ( of https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD ), and report any failure, inconsistency, or desired features to our tracker on sf.net, shown here:

http://librecad.org/cms/home/get-help.html

Since Ries and Rallaz are already talking about pushing for our first stable release, 1.0.0, testing/quality control is needed for the 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT branch. Have to catch as many bugs as possible.

If you love to do some C++/Qt, fork the source code from github.com , play with it, and send in pull requests.

Also, talk to us on irc, the channel #librecad on freenode.net

Thanks,

Dongxu Li

Re: New user build report

OK, I'll do what I can.
I'm not much for coding, but I can test things as I go along.
Looks like I'm going to have to learn some git as well, beyond simply pulling sources.
I'll get on IRC when I can, thanks for the link.

thanks for helping. As a heads up, the new git code requires
libboost-dev to be installed on Debian systems before compiling. This
is a new change, as of today/yesterday.

The only git commands you'll need are
$ git clone <repo address>
and
$ git pull

the first one will copy it to you, the second one will update any changes.

Re: New user build report

I was on IRC with somebody yesterday about this very thing, was it you? :)
hpp3 is an alternate IRC handle I use, as sometimes edvard is already taken on the nickserv.

I had installed libboost-dev previous to this, but the warning that "boost.pc" was missing still came up after running 'qmake-qt4'.
I'll be looking into this further to perhaps come up with a .pc file to satisfy qmake (it's specifically the boost-math component that LibreCAD utilizes, according to the conversation).

Hi,

yes, I use 'dli' on irc.

as you found out, we can safely remove the pkg-config lines in project file, and qmake finds boost still.

The pkg-config part for boost already removed from git master.

boost part runs smoothly in linux now.

Thanks,

Dongxu

Re: New user build report

edvard
I'm filling in for a co-worker all this next week, and my weekend's going to be cut short, so I won't be able to do much until next week.
However, I'll be pulling the git today to compile before I go to bed, and give the build what workout I can with the porch plans I've been seriously neglecting lately... ;)
