@slspencer, I have tested the seamly2d package built on launchpad in my “sandbox” and submitted a pull request in the “main” fashionfreedom/seamly2d repository to complete this issue. Here is a screenshot showing the version I tested
Suggestion: the file affected, seamly2d.pro was automatically generated by qtcreator:
"Project created by QtCreator 2013-06-18T12:36:clock430: "
and reflects a workflow that may or may not still be applicable. I suggest that anyone working on the new, or ultimate workflow for the seamly2d project be aware of this file, how it was generated, and what version of QtCreator and Qt and development platform may have been involved.
At any rate, I suggest that pull request 236 be merged, despite the fact that the check
" continuous-integration/appveyor/pr — AppVeyor build failed" shows a failure because I believe that check is irrelvant.
It is possible that the xpdf dependency reflects some functionality that existed in valentina and seamly2d at some point in time. I suggest testing in windows, mac, and all linux versions to determine whether there may be additional changes required. The area to be examined will be pdf file creation, and may manifest itself as a problem with some aspects of print functionality under the layout menu option in the seamly2d main menu.
I am fairly sure that the xpdf issue will not be a problem for anyone who chooses to use the appimage version.
If you intend to support users who install from a ppa, I believe it will still be a problem.
