Re: Reddit post Qt license

If CS was in the Debian repositories I think it would make it easier for new users to get started and might increase adoption. The last time I looked at BSD (GhostBSD a while back) I noticed that CS had been packaged https://euroquis.nl/freebsd/2022/02/20/copperspice.html and CopperSpice could be ea...

Re: Debian 12 Bookworm CopperSpice 1.8.2 Binaries

Thanks for your suggestions. It was not meant to be a formal set of instructions just a record of the steps that I took in chronological order to get up and running with CopperSpice on Debian 12. The guide is now located at

Re: Reddit post Qt license

Thank you for your replies. I have decided to focus on using CopperSpice rather than Qt for my "hobby" projects. It is a pity that the CopperSpice library is not in the Debian repositories.

Re: Reddit post Qt license

Sorry I meant released with LGPLv2.1. While the Free Software Foundation recommends using the latest version LGPLv3 I thought that LGPLv2.1 would be compatible with CopperSpice. I have read that derivative works of LGPLv2.1 code must be licensed under the same or GPLv2 or later. However, derivative ...

Re: Reddit post Qt license

I still find licensing including open source licensing difficult to follow at times. I have released my (hobby) CopperSpice Casper Calendar app as LGPLv2.1. https://gitlab.com/crispinalan/caspercalendar Currently it uses its own built-in speech synthesizer. However, if I wanted to install and the us...

Reddit post Qt license

There has been a new post on Reddit regarding the Qt license entitled “The small company I work for decided that a commercial license is too expensive and restrictive..” with an image outlining restrictions. Surely these restrictions can’t be true. https://www.reddit.com/r/QtFramework/comments/17kew...

Re: Debian 12 Bookworm CopperSpice 1.8.2 Binaries

Thanks for the information. Debian 12 Bookworm will be around for many years to come because Debian has a longer release schedule compared to other distributions. Also when I downloaded and uncompressed the CopperSpice API documentation from “download.copperspice.com” I found it contained some stran...

Debian 12 Bookworm CopperSpice 1.8.2 Binaries

I have noticed that there is no CopperSpice 1.8.2 binary download file in compressed format for Debian 12 (just Debian 11) on your "download.copperspice.com" page and so I built CopperSpice from source and put together a guide for other Debian Bookworm users. https://github.com/crispinproj...

CS Designer - Dialog with button box

I think there could be an issue with the way CS Designer creates XML for a dialog with button box. This is the generated XML for the dialog ui. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ui version="4.0"> <class>Dialog</class> <widget class="QDialog" name="D...
