Re: Wrong set of documentation for LibreCAD on Ubuntu

Lisando,

thanks for taking care of this.

Due to how LIbreCAD internally searches for files,
teh documentation has to be put into this directory:

/usr/share/doc/librecad/doc  (note the extra doc)

Will that work for you?

Remember, only the two mentioned files are needed.

Ries,

There is going to be a delay in uploading, one of the libraries is
currently being rebuilt:
https://buildd.debian.org/status/package.php?p=dxflib

Once it's done and published Lisandro will be able to upload the
helpfiles fix (installing them in /usr/share/doc/librecad/doc,) which
I will then manually push to the Ubuntu PPA.

Once it is set up it will work. It's a little more complicated because
the packages usually have to trickle down from debian -> ubuntu ->
ubuntu PPA

I've decided that its inefficient this way, so I just removed the
ubuntu PPA from that chain. I'll be setting it up so that those builds
will be independent of the official builds so that it can get to users
faster.

Tonight I have some time I'll be able to mess with it a bit to get it
working so we have total control over it instead of relying on the
other build machines.

Ok, it's up and running now. Every day it will download the github
master branch and build a package automatically if there were any new
commits. Doing an apt-get update apt-get upgrade will keep your
installation up to date.

You can see the status of builds here:
https://code.launchpad.net/~librecad-dev/+recipe/librecad-dev-daily

It will work for Maverick (10.10) and higher versions of Ubuntu.


This was a little more difficult that normal since Lisandro was doing
most of the work and I am away from development machines to test
things. He did a great job putting the package together even though he
was unfamiliar with some of the changes (e.g. this release added help
files, logos.) While the helpfile bug should be fixed in the PPA, we
are still working on uploading the fixes to the official Ubuntu and
Debian archives (there is a delay because of the library I pointed out
earlier that is preventing the new package from being uploaded)

Scott, Lisandro,

I have updated ubuntu and indeed now a directory /usr/share/librecad/doc is created,
but it still contains the wrong set of documentation.

Now, it could be that I mis-understand the purpose of that directory, may be Ubuntu requires pure HTML documentation? but the things is that LibreCAD cannot read the pure HTML version to show in the inline help system.

LibreCAD really need the two files for the help system to function.

- LibreCADdoc.qch
- LibreCADdoc.qhc

Remember, they are generated files! I hope that makes sense.

Ries: I don't know wich version you've got, but all I can tell is that we
still have some packaging issues due to the dxflib change.

The program needs the qhc and qch files, so it should have it, don't worry
about that, just give us some time :-) (this weekend I have been working from
my laptop out of home, so neither Scott nor I had much time to properly review
this).

Let me ask you a question: are the HTML up to date so as to add them to the
packaging as another form of documentation (not online doc)?

On another issue, I had subscribed to the list, but I never got a confirmation
mail (maybe nabble doesn't send them?)

Kinds regards, Lisandro.

We're aware of it - for some reason Ubuntu and Debian's installation
scripts are not listening to our installation instructions. Everything
is unix/resources/doc is supposed to end up in
/usr/share/doc/librecad/doc - but it's still empty. So then we tried
installing everything from support/doc as well (since the files are
generated in that folder), but it still didn't copy over the qhc and
qch files but did copy over all the html files that you see. We worked
on it a bit this weekend and haven't found out why it's happening.
Lisandro is currently working on it.

Scott, Lisandro,

since I did see the update I was thinking it was all in place and corrected.
No rush...

Lisandro just found that the files are not being generated at all, for
some reason. Hopefully this is a clue to get this fixed...

Also, every night there will be an update for whatever you put into
github. It's automagic now, the PPA has become alive!

New version of the package uploaded, this time I tested it and worked ok :-)

Scott: somehow the orig.tar.gz that g-bp generates it's not the same as the
one I originally uploaded, so expect rejects if you use that tar.gz.

Kinds regards, Lisandro.
