Implement improvements around QGIS
Open, WishlistPublic


This is meant as a reference task with imprvements that can and possibly should be made to our QGIS package to make it more on par with official built packages. There might be more stuff that could be improved, so you are free to add more things if needed, but these are things that I could find useful. A lot of QGIS users are using it professionally for companies and such so it is best to have most support carved out for them to use.

  • Enable 3D support. Enabled by adding -DWITH_3D=TRUE to cmake variables.

We should probably make sure to have most optional dependencies too:

  • for GRASS providers and plugin - GRASS >= 7.0.0.
  • for gps plugin - gpsbabel
  • for qgis mapserver - FastCGI
  • for oracle provider - Oracle OCI library

3D support wasn't enabled because qt5-3d wasn't in the repo. But I guess that now it could be added. *looks at @sunnyflunk*

Regarding the optional runtime dependencies: gpsbabel and fastcgi are in the repo.
There was a request for grass, so it's just waiting for a volunteer to package it, I guess
There is no reason to package oracle oci at this time since nobody requested it.

GRASS is also a PITA to build.

Everything you have asked for is possible, no one has stepped up to do it though. Especially packaging GRASS.
