Double Commander Qt5-based
Open, WishlistPublic

Description

We already have the package 'doublecmd' in the shannon Solus repo. This is the GTK-based version of this tool.
Now, with the Solus-Plasma release, it would be fantastic to have this tool in Qt5-based version.
And it will be ready for the future Qt-based Budgie, whenever it comes...

It is FOSS, of course.

More info with links to source code at https://doublecmd.sourceforge.io/

It isn't. Budgie 11 is going to use GTK4.

NOTE: To packagers, this should be split off from doublecmd to doublecmd-qt

Would appear to need Lazarus Qt ( https://dev.getsol.us/source/lazarus/ )

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lQt4Pas

Is it a Solus policy to always rebuild from sources?
I got the portable Qt5 version from the DC home page and it runs properly in Solus-Plasma.

Yes. We require all open-source packages be built from source.
