Summary0014716: Pull request: Adding a Flatpak manifest
DescriptionPR: https://github.com/scribusproject/scribus/pull/87

This adds a manifest for creating a cross-distro Flatpak package (http://flatpak.org).

You can test this by installing flatpak and flatpak-builder and then running

flatpak remote-add kde-repo --from https://distribute.kde.org/kderuntime.flatpakrepo
flatpak install kde-repo org.kde.Platform
flatpak install kde-repo org.kde.Sdk
flatpak-builder --repo=scribus-repo scribus-build net.scribus.scribus.json
flatpak remote-add --no-gpg-verify scribus-repo
flatpak install scribus-repo net.scribus.scribus
flatpak run net.scribus.scribus

With the following command you can create a .flatpak bundle (size: 48 MB):

flatpak build-bundle scribus-repo scribus.flatpak net.scribus.scribus

The .flatpak file (I uploaded one here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1SoIjRsaQikdUVIYS1RWFczVjQ) can be installed with gnome-software or by running

flatpak install --bundle scribus.flatpak

I have worked upon Alex’s manifest. I also provide builds of it (nightly and development). You can find all the information here: http://drjurf.tk/scribus-flatpak/

The bundle (isn’t really the main point of Flatpak, but useful as a reference) size including all dependencies, sans OSG (removed after discussion with a-l-e, it caused a crash anyway), Ghostscript (still thinking about whether to add it, I can slim it down but maybe I’ll make an extension) and tkinter (might require recompiling Python, I am _not_ gonna go that route) has 56.6MB

2 notes:
 * it would be great if a link would be supplied on the Scribus download page, since it exists people might as well make use of it
 * adding the json to the repo would enable GNOME Builder to provide a one-click compile, no changes to the host OS necessary, this has the potential to significantly lower the entry barrier for new contributors
