GraphicsMagick (-DWANT_GRAPHICSMAGICK=1) seems to be causing issues on startup:

scribus: magick/error.c:1025: ThrowLoggedException: Assertion `exception->signature == MagickSignature' failed.

Followed by Scribus dying “with signal 6”.

Opening this bug so that we keep track of this.
This task depends upon

Maybe we should report upstream, but otoh we are apparently the only affected distribution?

How do you replicate this? Recompile with GM enabled?
Comment by Bruno Pagani (ArchangeGabriel) - Saturday, 11 September 2021, 20:58 GMT
Yes, see PKGBUILD.

I don't have any issue running Scribus after enabling the commented out GM enabling flag and rebuilding. Does that mean this issue is obsolete and we can just add it back in or am I missing something?

I posted my build with GM enabled to [community-testing]. Anybody interested is encouraged to check it out. You should be able to install with just `pacman -S`. Feedback would be appreciated in here if it works or fails for anyone.
