Ubuntu Makefile


#1

I liked @robin.newman’s Linux building instructions

but I got tired of typing them in by hand; I would make mistakes 50% of the time. So I paid an Upworker to create a build script out of them, for Ubuntu 16.04. He went and cloned the entire SP repo to Bitbucket :-/

but the interesting file is here -

https://bitbucket.org/heos/upwork-sonic-pi/src/d289bc62125b1e14c9e40c0c5c9738ba72ee6d34/app/gui/qt/build-ubuntu-app?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default

basically builds a working SP 3.2 on Ubuntu 16.04 with minimum hassle, MIDI and all.

Wondering if folk would like this included in the core distribution ? Wondering what the best way to do that is ? Submit a merge request ?
