Bug Description

Binary package hint: scidavis

Scidavis can't be installed in Maverick, due to its dependency on the obsolete QAssistantClient class.

This was previously provided by the qt4-assistant binary package (from qt4-x11) but this package is no longer available. The qassistantclient.h header also appears to have been removed from the dev package.

I guess the proper solution is to patch scidavis to use the QProcess class instead, as described at http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.6/qassistantclient.html

Alternatively, qt4-x11 should be made to provide qt4-assistant.
