Invoking Script from Command line

Edward Scerri
Hello,

I would like to check if the below can be done:
1. Invoking "librecad" from Linux command line
2. Passing 2 parameters within the invoke command
3. Parameter 1: path to existing DXF file
4. Parameter 2: script file that includes
                       a. some commands related to copy/paste of existing parts
                       b. exporting modified drawing to PDF

Can I do this using LibreCAD?

Thank you,

Edward Scerri

It is possible to use LibreCAD as a DXF to PDF converter from command line.
But it is not possible to apply any changes in this process.
You need latest code for this feature.
And you must run this on a desktop setup, because even when there is no window opening, the initialization of LibreCAD needs graphics and a screen manager.
The text terminal of a Linux server setup is not enough.
