Bug 27 - Release qtpovray for Windows
Bug 28 - Release qtpovray for Ubuntu 20, focal


So, my wife bought me this nifty new box (16 cores 32GB 2TB SSD) with 
the condition that I play steam games with her.  Hello Windows 10!
I had to get qtpovray running on Windows again (clipka removed 
boost::thread) and I made an installer for it.

Some rando facebook messengered me saying he couldn't get the ppa for 
Ubuntu 18 to work in Ubuntu 20.  So there's that build too.

Hmmm.

I did a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

and It opens the editor, but when I try to render, it just sends output to the
terminal:

PATHS
  HOME        = /home/oem
  SYSCONF     = /etc/qtpovray/3.8/povray.conf
  USERCONF    = /home/oem/.qtpovray/3.8/povray.conf
  SYSINI      = /etc/qtpovray/3.8/povray.ini
  SYSINI_OLD  = /etc/povray.ini
  USERINI     = /home/oem/.povray/3.8/povray.ini
  USERINI_OLD = /home/oem/.povrayrc

So, no idea what's going on there...  I guess one of the ini files got
overwritten...


(Good to see you here and updating qtpovray.   Hope you're doing lots better.
Congrats on the new box   :) )

Nope - disregard, it's all good.

I just got home after loading 14 cords of firewood, and had someone talking to
me...   "multitasking with a new file while exhausted...."


Works fine.  :)

Yes, Now when I see "Mr" I get the earworm for Maurice Ravel's "Bolero" 
going in my head.

14 cords!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't even imagine, ... unless there was lots of heavy machinery involved.

The first time I ever processed 10 cords of firewood was over a whole weekend
with 5 other people - chainsaws, log splitter, beer, smoke, on the side of a
mountain - at night.  :|      (they were insane)

This firewood comes split and packaged in 18 lb bags - 90 per pallet, but they
have to be broken up and re-stacked onto pallets according to truck load and
order number.   So, I have an electric ride-on Crown pallet jack to move the
pallets around - but I still have to lift and stack it all by hand.

Got it done with a bit of help in 5 hours.  B)

Good times.    Strong body, strong mind.   ;)


But lemme tell ya- between the lifting and the steering, I can really feel it in
my trapezius...

HAHAHA!  I'm not THAT spectacular X-D... qtpovray works nice for me now since I
sometimes have to switch unexpectedly between Windows, Linux, etc, it's good to
have more tools as alternatives. Especially the image preview looks very nice
docked with QT. I don't know yet how to use the breakpoints but this makes me
curious.

I am a first time qtpovray user.

Does the program not use an INI file for settings?

How do I set up multiple include paths?

Thanks.


Mike
