Any update on getting scribus-ng 1.5.x in the Test Repo? If not for MX-16 then hopefully for MX-17... Thanks!

It's a simple backport on Stretch for the 1.5.3 version in Debian Experimental, but that build fails on MX 16 with the error message that Qt 5 must be >= 5.5...Jessie just has 5.3, a backport is a beast, and may break other Qt applications.

If you have 64-bit, the AppImage might be a workaround for that roadblock: https://sourceforge.net/projects/scribu ... vel/1.5.3/

Thank You!

FWIW, I entered the text suggested on appimage.org:
"chmod a+x scribus-1.5.3-linux-x86_64.AppImage" and
"./scribus-1.5.3-linux-x86_64.AppImage"
in the Terminal and it starts up fine in MX-16.1 and opens an old file from 1.4.6 and saves it fine!

Started using the AppImage (1.5.3 on MX-16) and liked what I saw but unfortunately it started to crash with error 11 and sometimes error 6. Probably due to trying to find or write files to somewhere that MX-16 doesn't use but I haven't had time to play.
So I am hoping that 1.5.3 can be added to the repository because it seems that to wait for 1.6stable is never ending!

Now that MX-17 is out would scribus-ng 1.5.3 be able to be added to the MX Test Repo? Thanks!

b.t.w the AppImage 1.5.3 appears to be running no problem in 17 apart from the icons for file/folder management not showing in sub windows such as "get text" and "get image". I am in the process of doing a 4 page tabloid and will feed back if there are any other issues I find.

Scribus-ng 1.5.3 is now in the MX 17 test repo, so I'll add a thread for that when I get time.
