Re: Failed to create xcb gl-integration

We pushed the updates for CopperSpice which add the build files for the XCB glx plugin. We also pushed changes for KitchenSink which will deploy the glx plugin. We updated the error message to be clear that this plugin is only needed for programs which use OpenGL.

Re: iconv problems

Can you try applying the following diff to CopperSpice and see if it builds for you? With these two changes, both the iconv and cups issues have been cleaned up. diff --git a/src/core/CMakeLists.txt b/src/core/CMakeLists.txt index 1520f2502..285c2ff02 100644 --- a/src/core/CMakeLists.txt +++ b/src/c...

Re: Failed to create xcb gl-integration

Thanks for checking in with us. We are in final testing of the GLX integration plugin. It turns out setting up the support libraries correctly in CMake is a bit tricky. We should be able to publish this sometime next week.

Re: iconv problems

We have built CopperSpice on multiple Unix-like platforms including Debian, Arch, Fedora, and FreeBSD. We'd like to know what is going on in your specific setup. Can you send us an email at <info@copperspice.com> and include the following files? The output displayed when running CMake in a fresh, em...

Re: X11 headers not compliant with ISO C++ 17

You are correct that the C++17 standard does not allow the register keyword. GCC only reports this as a warning while clang reports it as an error. The workaround for this is to build with the -Wno-register flag which disables this error in clang. We considered enabling this automatically in our CMa...

Re: [SOLVED] error: conflicting types for 'FT_Get_Name_Index'

We'd just like to confirm that this entire issue was not related to CopperSpice so there is nothing we need to look at with freetype.

Failed to create xcb gl-integration
Thank you for reporting this. We are changing that message to indicate the gl-integration plugin is only needed when running a program which uses OpenGL.

Turns out we forgot to release the build files for the gl-integration plugins, which we will do shortly.

Re: Possible impending Qt fork and copperspice opportunity

New things can be added, but nothing that would break an existing build. This point was mentioned in another thread on the Developers forum under API Stability. We have added a detailed reply in that thread. Sweeping changes need to be well thought out and implemented with a purpose. But sometimes ...

Re: API stability and proje philosphy question

The code I write and put into production in 2020 will compile against the current version in 2051. No classes or methods will have disappeared and the header files will have the same names in the same places. Lots of things can be added, but nothing ever taken away. The high level API will remain c...

Re: Qt QML or Quick or Quick Controls 2?

I was hoping they completely removed QML and JavaScript as that was one of the worst decisions Qt ever made. I'd like to clarify and expand on the answer we gave. Qt Quick and QML have not been brought into CopperSpice and we have no intention of porting them to CopperSpice verbatim. The truth is, ...
