If starting an installed 'eric' (4.3.x) from command line only gives you an
ImportError: /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/PyQt4/Qsci.so: undefined symbol: _ZN9QsciLexer9setEditorEP13QsciScintilla
you don't need to fiddle around with different versions of eric
: all combinations (between_4.1.5-2_ and _126.96.36.199-1_) will fail, and bug report 532772
may be somewhat confusing.
Indeed you have to install their latest version from debian experimental this way
# apt-get install -t experimental libqscintilla2-5 python-qscintilla2
This brings you libqscintilla2-5 2.3.2-1.1 and python-qscintilla2 2.3.2-1.1, which currently are reported to be in 'testing'. Together with the latest eric
(both 188.8.131.52-1) it works.
The funny thing about this (and the reason to post that): I had installed (and purged before) just this combination umpteen times before using synaptic without errors, but 'eric' constantly refused as shown above!
Maybe some apt guru has an explanation for this. The rest of us is just glad to have it fixed.
