Due to the way the guide is done in expandable sections, the links under Debian do not do anything, unless you have already expanded the section. I presumed it was just broken links and did not bother any further since I'm not running debian.PySide is the official Qt binding for Python. PySide is for Qt4, while PySide2 is for Qt5.
Python 3 and Qt5
Single command for Python 3 and Qt5
This explains why I did not find any mention of PySide2 searching on that page.
The later section : "Building against Python 3 and Qt5" does not make any mention of the need of PySide2 nor that fact that it is not even worth bothering on Fedora. Maybe some clarification is needed there.
hobbes tracker report shows other packages are needed. pyside2-tools may be the relevent one I have been trying to find for the last two days.
Code: Select all
No matching package to install: 'pyside2-tools' No matching package to install: 'python3-pyside2-devel' No matching package to install: 'python3-shiboken2-devel'
Then maybe a less sarcastic tone may be more suitable in some of your comments about my need to build certain packages from source.This means absolutely nothing to me. Is this stable, unstable, new, old? What are you trying to say?
The upshot of the last two days wasted on FreeCAD issues seems to be that I need to either settle for the even more beta that beta state of 0.18 or upgrade my entire distro to get PySide2 or maybe build that from source as well.
Having some upto date info in the guide would be useful before repeatedly sending folks there with the attitude which sounds like RTFM.
Since any mention of Pyside2 is intentionally hidden unless someone expands the section for Superior Distributions, those of use with inferior distros with badly maintained repos are not even aware how badly served we are.
Perhaps that could be improved.
