@davidrevoy Great decision! Will dig into the repo and do a test run for german.

@der_On Thank you! give it 2 or 3 days, I'll get a proper README that will avoid many waste of time. 🙂 (Unless you like trial and error process to guess what dependencies is missing) 😅

@davidrevoy Sure. I will try to dockerize it. That will ease things for me and others.

@der_On Oh nice! I don't know a lot docker but I see you added info on the README to use it --> Ping @valvin

So, I suppose it ease a lot the install and download of all sources?

Follow

@davidrevoy @valvin Yes. It creates a virtual ubuntu 20.04 in a container, downloads and installs all dependencies runs the download.sh and then destroys the container. At least that is the goal.

@der_On i never tested running UI software inside docker. Is it your goal? By the way I like the idea to simplify the initialization / update of repository. Does files get good rights permission using this process? @davidrevoy

@valvin @davidrevoy Running UI software that has a CLI in docker is mostly working. You can even stream out a graphical interface out of docker. In my setup docker mounts the working directory inside the container, and does this as the user inside the container, which mostly is UID 1000 and should work for most single user Linux installs.

@der_On I mention UI because I think scribus has no cli to generate pdf files contrary to inkscape for example. So in the docker process we can have :

* init / update repository (download + conversion)
* i'm not sure of the ending process but there is the merge of PDF.

@davidrevoy

@valvin @davidrevoy Yes. That is true. Scribus still needs to be installed and used on the host system outside of docker.
