diffs to add graphicaleffects to Makefile

The palettes [F9] panel is empty.  This is likely because qt5-graphicaleffects is not marked as a dependency.  This patch "works for me".

Can you point me to something that illustrates what I should be looking at? I don't see anything special after pressing F9 (some kind of panel opens; it is labeled *Palettes* and has a button *Add palettes* and a search field; clicking the button pops up an empty kind of text-balloon).

When I run musescore locally, I **do** see

qrc:/qml/palettes/PaletteTree.qml:152: Error: Cannot assign to non-existent property "color"
Comment 2 Keith White 2020-07-17 21:06:09 UTC
You should also see a series of submenus like "Clefs", "Key Signatures", ... 

Opening the submenus should provide musical glyphs you can drag onto your score.

I build the port with WEBENGINE=off.  I don't know if that is also necessary to tickle the bug.

If qt5-graphicaleffects has been installed manually or by another package you won't see the problem.

I suppose you could try "pkg delete qt5-graphicaleffects", run musescore note the result of "F9".  Then "pkg install qt5-graphicaleffects", and then re-run musescore, press "F9" and see the difference?

The workaround might be "pkg install qt5-graphicaleffects" until upstream updates their dependencies (or as I suggest just add graphicaleffects to the makefile).  e.g. ref: https://musescore.org/en/node/296715

There is an upstream bug report:


It looks like Qt 5.15 and their new palette system don't like each other. So we've got two things that affect musescore right now:

- palette needs graphicaleffects. As you say, this can be installed after-the-fact and fixes the palette **if** you have Qt 5.14.
- palette is broken with Qt 5.15.

Since Qt 5.15 has landed in the tree, I could add the dependency as suggested, but then the packaged executable will **still** be broken, just for a different reason.
