I have just commited all the infrastructure needed for pdfedit-core-dev
package into our CVS.
What does it mean?
PDFedit source now comes with possibility of installation which can
contain only header files and libraries so that 3rd party applications
can build their functionality on this external package.
All you need to do is configure with --enable-pdfedit-core-dev parameter
and type use standard make && make install procedure.
This also enables packagers to prepare separate package (called e.g.
pdfedit-core-dev) which would do these steps for you and you can simple
depend on external package rather than do everything by hand.
(packagers will probably want to prevent GUI from being compiled for
devel package, so they should use
./configure --disable-gui --enable-pdfedit-core-dev WHATEVE_RPREFIX_YOU_USE)
I would be very happy, if packagers registered on this list could try
the current CVS sources and give me feedback so that we can fix some
problems before we do next release (please reply to the devel mailing
Thanks and best regards
