Re: make errors on OS X Mavericks (10.9)

The MacPorts Qt was eventually fixed for Mavericks. I was able to build ST via MacPorts, using whatever ST uses to build on MacPorts. Botan caused problems for a while, but there was a patch for that. It should all build now.

Re: ScanTailor for OSX is here

It's not the enhanced version, which does not appear to available on MacPorts.

I would leave MacPorts and Xcode installed, so that you can build the next version of scantailor when available on MacPorts.

Re: ScanTailor for OSX is here

No. Find my botan bug report. Read the messages. One of them has a port diff file attached. As I said, I built ST with MacPorts: sudo port install scantailor . I had to apply the diff patch to botan first. There are about 3 or 4 steps, explained in the MacPorts online documentation. I don't remember...

Re: ScanTailor for OSX is here

After applying a patch to the botan port, I was able to build ST via MacPorts under Mavericks. The patch is found in a thread relating to a botan bug report on the MacPorts web site.

Re: make errors on OS X Mavericks (10.9)

FWIW, gcc 4.8.1 built from source with MacPorts on Mavericks fails at the same place as gcc 4.2.1 did.

Re: make errors on OS X Mavericks (10.9)

In a similar problem report, I saw the suggestion to use gcc instead of clang. After issuing the command CC=gcc-4.2, cmake worked okay and I got to 23% (rather than 21%) before make aborted with the following: [ 23%] Building CXX object foundation/CMakeFiles/foundation.dir/GridLineTraverser.cpp.o In...

html conversion: "<b />" vs. "<p></p>"

I use a Mac. I have Adobe Acrobat X Pro. I need to go from a PDF file to an HTML file in preparation for the final editing to create an ebook using Calibre (i.e. import the HTML file into Calibre and use Calibre to convert to the desired ebook format). In short, I need an easy way to get to an HTML ...

Build Error under Mountain Lion

Latest version of source and everything else. This is the first time I tried to build ST since upgrading to Mountain Lion. I did uninstall and reinstall MacPorts and all my ports after upgrading to Mountain Lion. This is what I see: /Applications/scantailor/source $ cmake -DCMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/l...
