Summary0016748: Feature request: Allow running without installing
DescriptionAs mentioned in, you have to install scribus before you are able to run it. I think it would improve the development workflow if this isn't neccesary. There are a couple advantages of not having to run make install:
- No sudo needed. The installation directory needs sudo permissions to access.
- One fewer command needed
- It's quicker

Are there any big blockers that make this hard to do?
TagsNo tags attached.

We won't support this. However I think you can change a few things and then you won't encounter the below issues:
- Use a home directory based install directory. Use a cmake option like -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/home/<username>/scribus/install15x for example
- You do not need to make and then make install. Just simply run make install

Apart from the time to install, which is just a few seconds, its not really any slower.
