EDIT : sorry in advance for my really bad english
First of all, I don’t know if I am supposed to ask this in this forum, and with this tag. So if not, please tell me where I am supposed to do it.
So, since I had some problems with GNOME on Ubuntu 20.04, I moved to Kubuntu and installed the 22.04 version. And since I am a heavy user of Texmacs, I tried to install it, but for now I have encountered just misery and sadness.
I will tell here what I tried to install it and why it didn’t work.
First of all, Texmacs doesn’t provide an Ubuntu 22.04 version ready to install on the website.
So I installed the “static binary package” for x64 Linux, and it seems to work, until when I tried to save, I had a blank screen, the blank screen is only solved when I open texmacs as root user But if I put sudo texmacs as “exec” for the .desktop file, this file won’t open anymore.
Anyway, I hope there is a better way to install Texmacs on such a common distro as Ubuntu.
After that, I tried to install the 21.10 version, the latest but after installing it, nothing changes, I mean, there is no app installed. Weird.
After that, I tried to install the 2.1.2 from the git repository, but the installation needed guile, I installed guile 3.0, not compatible, I installed guile 2.0, not handled, I installed this, didn’t change a thing (not recognised, I think it’s because guile-dev). And when I ended up saying to the configure file that it could run guile 2.0 instead of 1.8, it told me that freetype is missing.
Same sh*t, I installed freetype2-demos, and it didn’t change anything.
After that I tried to install this even if I’m not sure that it was what I needed. And, it said that it has the same dependencies problems as the 2.1.2 github version (which is logical).
So to solve my problem I think that this last download thing is what I need, but I don’t know how to properly (and workingly) install the dependencies that are missing.
To remind you I am on Kubuntu 22.04.
Thanks in advance for any help.
