Hi there,

I have released qtpovray-3.80.1 for Linux.
https://github.com/dickbalaska/qtpovray/releases/tag/v3.80.1

I have debian 9 (stretch) x64 packages on my site and
Ubuntu 16 (xenial) and 18 (bionic) x86 and x64 packages on launchpad.

It is also rumored to build and run on Slackware 14.1

The application is divided into 3 packages.
1) qtpovray - the main executable (1.3M)
2) qtpovray-includes - POV-Ray include files (284K)
3) qtpovray-extras - Help files, insert menus, sample scenes (31M)


The launchpad site is forqued.
https://launchpad.net/~qtpovray
Ubuntu 16 is in the qtpovray ppa
and ubuntu 18 is in the ppa2 ppa.
(It generates a key, loses the key, and for bionic, insists on using
that key to diff the previous version and dies when it can't find it. To
release the next version, I have to create another ppa. Super lame.  For
xenial, you just have to see a "missing key" warning, slightly lame. A
known issue for three weeks now.)

I still struggle to get the Windows edition building. My multiplatform,
platform independent Makefile isn't.  (If a super-project has two
library subprojects, the second library skips the compile phase and goes
to the build-the-lib-from-non-existent-objects phase.  libpovray builds,
libvfe doesn't.)

This sounds great!  :)

Does it run on Linux Mint 18.3 64-bit?
Strongly considering doing a dual-boot on my laptop.

Is there a link to the features / differences of official POV-Ray?   (sorry,
it's been a while)

Yes. It looks like this:
http://www.buckosoft.com/qtpovray/g/qtpovrayInMint18.3.png

canonical fixed the keyserver issue, so it all works now.

Mint 18.3 is ubuntu 16, which is what I run.  qtpovray installs clean. yay.

I switched to Linux last year. I see no reason to go back to Windows. I
need Windows for Quicken and Turbotax; I run my old Windows 8 in a
VirtualBox window to access them.

It includes the last published POV-Ray 3.8 alpha that was tagged.
The only difference would be in the default locations of files.
Instead of /etc/povray/3.7 , I use /etc/qtpovray/3.8
Similarly, /usr/share/povray-3.7 becomes /usr/share/qtpovray-3.8

The main features are described here:

So after loading Mint onto at least 50 laptops at work, I now have it on my home
laptop, with dual boot.  :)
Now I just sort of have to get back into the swing of _using_ Linux.

I have done the following so far:

oem@oem-Inspiron-N5110 ~/Desktop $ sudo add-apt-repository
ppa:qtpovray/qtpovray[sudo] password for oem:

Oh, look:
http://www.buckosoft.com/qtpovray/developer.html

So, I went to my Downloads folder and did:

$ sudo apt install \
  git \
  qt5-qmake \
  qt5-default \
  libboost-dev \
  libboost-date-time-dev \
  libboost-thread-dev \
  libz-dev \
  libpng-dev \
  libjpeg-dev \
  libtiff-dev \
  libopenexr-dev

Which seemed to go fine.

Then I did:

oem@oem-Inspiron-N5110 ~/Downloads/qtpovray-3.80.1 $ git clone
https://github.com/dickbalaska/qtpovray.git && \
> git checkout qtpovray && \
> qmake && \

Uh oh, piskeddios.

Ugh, you got a little ahead of me. I didn't think you were going to do
this for a bit. You didn't need to do any of that extra stuff in this
and your next post.

Total steps:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:qtpovray/qtpovray
sudo apt update
sudo apt install qtpovray qtpovray-includes qtpovray-extras


I will be publishing another version RSN.  I don't have a .desktop file
which, in ubuntu/Unity I don't care; but in Kubuntu/Mint puts qtpovray
in the correct menu.

With those three steps above, you will get notified like any other
package when I've updated.

Unnecessary unless you want to build it. (developer)

did the last step, opened a new terminal, typed qtpovray, and followed the setup
directions, now I get a message in the POV-Ray console when I try to render the
checkered plane scene by pressing the green arrow:

chdir:  /home/oem/Documents
command:
No input file provided

Ok, flaw in my tutorial.  Either type the name of the file in the text
box, or right-click "Select for Render" in the Resource view.

Never you mind me.   I did the read the wordy thing, and sounded it all out all
by myself, and did the righty clicky thing and there was much qtpovray joy.

OK.  Downloaded, installed, running.
What a day.
I'm gonna call it for the day.   Thanks for the help - no worries.
