While nightly executables are provided for windows and osx, and there is a coherent way of installing via community ppa on ubuntu/etc, Solus doesn't have access yet. I've struggled to properly build from source due to difficulties with dependencies (cairo, opencascade, the boost patch, etc).
Ideally I'd like to make this process easier for the Solus/KiCAD communities, but I'm out of my depth.
I see the following options:
- I fix my buildchain and just build locally,
- Use the kicad solus repository locally (how?), and modify it for bleeding edge builds,
- Learn how snaps work, and try and create 'nightly snaps' after getting the stable snaps working again due to lack of maintenance on the kicad-snap repo.
- Someone tells me how this really should be done to be accessible for other Solus users, because I'm presuming a kicad-weekly-from-source etc isn't going to be accepted into the main repo? Is there a provision for this kind of rolling-"unstable" software?
