Long time Qt developer and author kicking the tires on CopperSpice. Started some blog posts about the beginnings of the journey and why.
Haven't finished writing the third post yet because having issue.
I started with a minimal install. The only other things installed were BOINC, NVidia drivers, Gnu Emacs, and JED. I used the package install commands from here:
I then installed Postgres and created some PostgreSQL databases.
Yes, no data for 2020 yet, but from 1996 or so forward, all there. I even rebooted after installing all of that stuff and before creating the databases. I planned on the first real test being a port of
Been using that project for years. That and a lottery tracker application are my go-to tire kickers.
The required package list appears to be a bit short.

I can print just fine from the default text editor on this system. I'm using FireFox to post this and see a little lock meaning I'm secure. I see ALSA and PulseAudio were listed in the table and simply left off the apt-get install commands so I should be able to fix that.
Can someone please tell me what the Ninja process is looking for when it comes to SSL, CUPS, and PostgreSQL? I honestly thought I had everything I would need for PostgreSQL.
Like most of the OpenSource community, I ceased caring about MySQL once Oracle bought InnoDB.
