First, I want to thank everyone that volunteers their time to maintain this package. I attempt to maintain FOSS software on FreeBSD in my “free time” (free time being the hours I’m supposed to be sleeping) and I know how much effort is required.
The company/team I work for is slowly adopting the gvedit program for generating state graphs and I have been asked to maintain some diagrams. I tried installing graphviz/gvedit on Ubuntu 20 first. The apt package doesn’t have a binary for gvedit and stack overflow recommends compiling it manually: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1060516/how-to-get-gvedit-gvedit-graph-file-editor-for-ubuntu
The instructions do not seem to work on Ubuntu 20. From what I can tell, qt4 is depreciated. I tried building against qt5 but to no avail. Obviously, I could have made a mistake and the ubuntu packages are maintained by someone else, but I thought I would point out that gvedit is not readily available on Ubuntu 20.
So, I switched over to windows hoping for a quick win, but it appears gvedit is only available in 2.38 as per the thread here: Windows : Where is GVedit.exe?
I haven’t yet installed choco to attempt to get gvedit, but the link you provided for the download page no longer contains a link to 2.38. The only available download version I could l could find is 2.44.
(Update) I have actually managed to get a working copy in Windows by zipping someone else’s install and unzipping it on my windows VM. It seems to work so far.
SO, finally to my real question: Is gvedit depreciated and being removed? I know very little about the program at this point but I would like to ask if there is an alternative to gvedit if it is indeed being depreciated? Are there similar functions available from the command line?
Once again, thank you for your efforts and time to maintain GraphViz.
