Thanks a lot. I followed your steps and Texstudio works now
For SP3 migration, I tried some time ago and just now once again to migrate to SP3 but it fails due to conflicts!
I recall posting it on the forum to get some recommendation and the advice I got was to check with HP because I’m using a specialized HP version or something like that.
The SLED I’m using came pre-installed with an HP laptop
Have you tried migrating to SP3 on HP laptops?
Thanks once again
[QUOTE=mikewillis;22764]I was looking at TeXStudio recently for SLED 11 SP3. I don’t ‘do’ TeX, but I manage machines for people who do.
I couldn’t find an rpm that worked for me so I worked out how to build it from source, more notes are below if you want to give it a go. You’ll need some packages from the SDK. Links to various versions of the SDK can be found via https://forums.suse.com/content.php?121-SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-SDK-downloads
Need packages: libpoppler-devel libpoppler-qt4-devel libqt4-devel
Build docs are at http://sourceforge.net/p/texstudio/wiki/Compiling/
To install without root to /tmp/opt
Unpack source, run ./Build.sh
Enter desire prefix: /tmp/opt
Accept other default answers
The install will fail because despite you having specified a prefix, the installer will still try and put some things in to /usr/share/appdata/. Edit Makefile then re-run the install
$ sed -i 's!$(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/appdata/!/tmp/opt/share/appdata/!g' Makefile
$ make install
Note the sed command needs changing if you’re not using /tmp/opt
Some tests fail, but apparently these are known fails
There’s a packaging of TeXworks (http://www.tug.org/texworks/) for SLE-11 SP3 available at http://software.opensuse.org/package/texworks (click ‘Show other versions’)
SLED 11 SP2 is out of general support. Unless you’ve purchased Long Term Service Pack Support now would be a good time to update to SP3.[/QUOTE]
