[Texmacs-dev] qt-texmacs not displaying documents well in ubuntu 9.10

Hi all,

I have tried Texmacs, and I really love the equation editor - the absolute
best I've used so far. However, I am really annoyed by some non-standard
editing behavior of Texmacs, like not deleting a selection when you type
over it. I saw in this list that some patching has been going on in this
area, lately. I'm also looking forward to more standard dialog boxes, etc. 
So, I decided to try compiling the Qt version and see how usable it could
be. (Further down I'd like to implement some kind of exporting an equation
to svg via the clipboard, in order to be able to use texmacs for making
posters and presentations.)

So I grabbed the svn and compiled it on my ubuntu 9.10 AMD64.
As a result I can launch the program (apparently with no errors, at least on
the console), but there is no page on the screen before I actually type
something, and then, the width of the page grows with the text I type. I
could load a previous document, and all words appear aligned left, one by
line on a very narrow page... (most documents generate tons of errors and
crash the program, though). I probably miss some crucial dependency, or I'm
not using the appropriate version of something, but I can't figure it out
alone, I'm afraid. 

Can someone kindly point to me instructions for compiling a working
qt-texmacs for linux, please?
