Finally, I’ve created Gentoo ebuilds for Lx-Office ERP 2.6.0 beta 1 and its dependencies. Lx-Office is a fork of the server-based open source accounting solution SQL-Ledger and customized for the German market (and to some extent, the Swiss and Austrian markets).
A screenshot of Lx-Office ERP 2.6.0 beta 1 showing the XUL menu:
And here’s a flash video of Lx-Office ERP 2.6.0 beta 1 showing the XUL menu in action.
To install Lx-Office ERP 2.6.0 beta 1 on Gentoo, follow these steps:
1) Set up a local portage overlay (e.g. at /usr/local/portage), if you haven’t done so already.
# mkdir -p /usr/local/portage
In /etc/make.conf, set
2) Download lx-office-erp-2.6.0_beta_p1-r1_plus_dependencies.tgz and extract it to your local portage overlay
# cd /usr/local/portage
# tar xzvf lx-office-erp-2.6.0_beta_p1-r1_plus_dependencies.tgz
3) In /etc/portage/package.keywords, add the line
(or ‘www-apps/lx-office-erp ~x86‘, depending on the architecture of your machine)
4) In /etc/portage/package.use, add the line
5) Install Lx-Office ERP on your system by executing
# emerge -av lx-office-erp
Depending on your current portage settings and installed ebuilds, you may need to unmask additional ebuilds.
6) Use webapp-config to link your Lx-Office ERP installation to a specific host, e.g. by executing
# webapp-config -I -h localhost -d lx-erp lx-office-erp 2.6.0_beta_p1-r1
7) Follow the steps displayed on the screen to setup and configure Lx-Office ERP. Some of these steps might be automated in a later release of the ebuild.
8) Have fun using Lx-Office ERP on Gentoo! :)
