Fwd: Re: [Qgis-developer] Error in LizMap printing

Hi all.
I do not know if someone already followed this thread. Basically the issue is that qgis-mapserver requires an x server not to crash during printing. xvfb is just ok. It would be good to add it as a dep.
Any opinion?
All the best.

Everyone is invited to make a pull-request to the documentation or edit
the QGIS server tutorial on the wiki.

Obviously - installing QGIS server is somewhat trickier than QGIS
desktop, because you have to deal with Apache, Apache rewriting,
potentially also password protection, etc - and you have to make sure
that all the paths to resources and Postgis connections from QGIS
desktop are still reachable by QGIS server.

The X-requirement is unfortunately necessary because of the way qt works
for PDF generation and for the integration of SVG symbols/patterns.

I confirm it does solve the issue.
I think we should set up a simpler solution however.
Thanks, and sorry for the noise.

I'm still convinced that this is mainly a packaging problem.

It's rather common for other (debian-like) packages to provide default
apache working configs and to install dependencies (could be optional

It's just a (fast)CGI after all.

Of course the deafult installation must be fine-tuned or tweaked for
production websites but this is also true for all other web
