scantailor on osx

Post by robertlaing » 20 Dec 2015, 14:44

is anyone successfully using scantailor on recent osx version, maybe using homebrew?

the latest formula https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-x1 ... ntailor.rb
breaks on compiling: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-x11/issues/157

could you help on this? perhaps is a problem of recent boost release

thank you

It's this old issue except with newer versions of boost it seems to happen even if you are careful not to include <boost/bind.hpp> and <boost/lambda/lambda.hpp> into the same .cpp file. The following procedure may help (untested):

In source code, find all files containing "#include <boost/lambda/lambda.hpp>". In those files only, make the following changes:
_1 => boost::lambda::_1
_2 => boost::lambda::_2
_9 => boost::lambda::_9
Scan Tailor experimental doesn't output 96 DPI images. It's just what your software shows when DPI information is missing. Usually what you get is input DPI times the resolution enhancement factor.
