I've talked with Toni some months ago about the ability to test compile and
execution of Krusader in several distros. While a solution is to fire up many
VM, with Docker you can reach that in faster way.
There is a good article to start with:
I followed the Docker part and I'm fine to use a pre-built image to compile
Krusader directly from KDevelop. The compile steps are pretty easy, while the
execution is a bit tricky because you have to configure xhost and .krusaderrc.
I also created a Jenkins system similar to build.kde.org
where I can launch
every compile test and wait for results; the steps are very basics: grab code,
compile, publish results.
An example to create a Docker image (ubuntu-20.04-gcc.Dockerfile):
RUN export TZ=Europe/Rome
RUN apt-get update
RUN apt-get install -y rsync ssh gettext
RUN apt-get install -y qt5-default
RUN apt-get install -y extra-cmake-modules libkf5plasma-dev libkf5kio-dev libkf5archive-dev libkf5parts-dev libkf5wallet-dev libkf5xmlgui-dev kdoctools-dev
RUN DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y build-essential cmake ninja-build zlib1g-dev
CMD ["tail -f /dev/null"]
Those are the same steps you have to do on a brand new system. With
docker build -f ubuntu-20.04-gcc.Dockerfile -t ubuntu-20.04-gcc .
you have an up-to-date ubuntu image that you can use everywhere to test your
